Big Pimpin'

Not content with just changing the world of racing instrumentation with the Atlas 2, the team at Vakaros has set out to change the way you race. Please click on the image for a better view.

It’s big news, and it’s called RaceSense. RaceSense builds on the powerful hardware in the Atlas 2 to create a virtual racecourse and share it wirelessly with other nearby sailors. It runs the start, enforces penalties, boundaries, gates, and scores the finish. All you have to do is race. You can say goodbye to general recalls and black flag starts thanks to centimeter-accurate fully automatic OCS calls at the start line.

Optional boundaries and penalties help keep boats close, and scoring is built right in, so you’ll know how you did the moment you cross the finish line. Seems it took the brand new state-of-the-art hardware to pull this off, and that is what the Atlas 2 brings to the table. From the state-of-the-art sensors, LEDs and sound, to the long-range wireless mesh networking, no other device in the world is capable of pulling this off.
