Design

To sail a boat you must understand and be aware of your environment. Position, orientation, acceleration and control surface orientation as well as speed through the water, tides, depth, daylight, visibility, wind direction, wind speed, map location, long and short range obstacle detection are vital to successful navigation. This telemetry should be collected and made available to both the analysis engine as well as delivered via a radio link to the base station for later review.
