America’s Cup – Land Rover BAR

The Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing, or Land Rover BAR, sailing team is led by Sir Ben Ainslie, arguably the most successful Olympic sailor ever, and made up of some of the best British and international sailors, designers, builders, and racing support.

Land Rover BAR was established in 2014.

Using machine learning to analyze the performance of Land Rover vehicles, Mauricio Munoz, a Jaguar Land Rover Performance Engineer, uses this data and applies it to the systems that manage the electronics and hydraulic systems on the boat the Land Rover BAR team uses.

“Essentially, what we are trying to do is get a better insight of how or why the boat is performing in the way that it is performing and try to find ways to better increase its performance,” Munoz explains, “Basically, what I’m looking for are patterns, combinations of behaviors that the boat has that could potentially give us a clue as to why the boat goes faster in certain conditions. “

“We’re applying machine learning and artificial intelligence, and they haven’t really been applied to this sort of data before. Machine learning at BAR, that’s the cavalry of performance analysis. With machine learning, what you can do is, to save time, instead of having to go out on the water and changing one thing, we can virtually change many things at once. It is absolutely fantastic.”

Implementing this data and improving performance will, hopefully, allow Land Rover BAR to bring home a victory at the America’s Cup.

“It would be really really rewarding if we win the cup now and if we could essentially trace that back to some of the analysis that we did. It is just as much as having a really well trained sailing team as it is to have a boat that’s easy to sail. When you connect the two, I think that’s what is really going to bring it home.”

LEGO World Record & All-New Discovery

Land Rover helped break a Guinness World Record by using a 22 foot LEGO replica of London’s Tower Bridge to assist in revealing the All-New Land Rover Discovery. The model, built by a team of master LEGO builders, was made using over 5,805,846 individual LEGO bricks, beating the previous record holder by just over 470,000 bricks. This gives the Tower Bridge model the title for Largest Lego Structure (most bricks). It was built over 150 days and even features a working drawbridge.

The reveal of the All-New Land Rover Discovery also featured two LEGO “Discovery Zones.” An Adventure Sone, which featured international explorer Bear Grylls, and an Equestrian Zone, which featured British rider Zara Phillips. The All-New Discovery, driven by Ben Ainslie, moved across the model followed by a life-size replica of the Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing Boat.

The All-New Land Rover Discovery is the most versatile Land Rover model yet. It comes with Land Rover’s new Intelligent Seat Fold technology which allows owners to configure the seven seats in their Discovery from anywhere in the world with their smart phone and plenty of storage.

Partnered with Meridian, a leader in high-performance audio technologies and digital sound processing, Land Rover has created 10 and 16 speaker advanced audio systems for the All-New Discovery. Both options feature Dynamic Volume Control technology to make sure all undesired noise is balanced out. Another technology perk of the All-New Discovery is the Optimal Rear Seat Entertainment system. This system provides 8 inch screens that are built into each front seat headrest. Mobile Hi-Definition Link and USB connections, WhiteFire digital wireless headphones, and HDMI are included.

The exterior of the All-New Discovery is truly designed for the next generation. The All-New Discovery demonstrates well-crafted and sculpted surfaces to showcase a new level of refinement. The interior was designed using inspiration from the classic Discovery. It uses strong horizontal and vertical lines. The interior also boasts a panoramic roof. This one-of-a-kind roof makes the cabin of the vehicle feel larger and provides plenty of natural light.
