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.”
