The Challenge

Land Rover BAR, British Challengers for the 35th America’s Cup, required a pioneering new mobile app that could intuitively show critical information throughout the racing – with no user interaction.

Optimised for challenging race conditions, hardware and battery performance, and crafted to ensure its operation kept pace with events as they unfolded, the Coderus mobile app solution was used throughout the America’s Cup racing calendar.

We needed an app to act as a virtual seventh crew member and become central to our team, providing Ben and I with the valuable data to gain a competitive advantage. We’ve had great support from BT and Coderus throughout.

Our Methodology

The Land Rover BAR team chose the Android tablet and Android Wear devices to meet the challenging conditions presented.

With the rapid and agile development of the app, our sprints of developing and testing were scheduled for a standard two-week duration. Running in the background during testing, Crashlytics Beta allowed us to quickly identify the causes of any crashes or failure and apply solutions for the next release.

The Tech_

  • App driven by data from the team’s server.
  • Race boat set up as an independent network.
  • Multiple tablets able to connect via Wi-Fi.
  • Android Wear watches connected to tablets.
  • Custom scene graph engine was developed.
  • Data attached to moving objects on screen.
  • Recording feature captured server data.
  • App generated text logs for crucial insight.

The Story

The boat is embedded with hundreds of sensors, providing real-time data that will allow the team to make swift tactical decisions and optimise their time in the water.

Data from the sensors is served to the Coderus app, which enabled critical data to be read in a user-friendly format from the crew’s water-resistant Android tablets and watches.

During development, Coderus worked remotely and sustainably across timezones with the Land Rover BAR team, a fantastic example of collaboration between UK and Bermuda.
