ASV Roboat World Championship at WRSC 2011!
The ASV Roboat from Austrian INNOC research team successfully defeated its World Champion title at the 4th World Robotic Sailing Championship 2011, that took place in Luebeck, Germany. Roboat has been in development by a INNOC research team since 2006.
Robotic sail boats perform the complex manoeuvres of sailing fully automatically and without human assistance. Starting off by calculating the best route based on weather data and going on to independent tacking and jibing, stand-alone sailing boats are able to sail through to any and every destination. The human being merely has to enter the destination co-ordinates.
