Hydroptere is the fastest sailing boat of the world, sailing over 50 knots. When the Hydroptere team came to present their project to EPFL researchers, I was immediately convinced. Fortunately, I could manage to get the CVLab involved to answer two questions:
- How to measure the shape of the sail during navigation?
- How to measure the immersion of the foil?
The answers, of course, involve cameras and innovative computer vision algorithms.
