Hundreds of sensors on Oracle Team USA’s race boats, prepping for next year’s defense of the America’s Cup, pass data on telemetry, wind and load data to an onboard server for processing. A Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex 7982 802.11n access point carries the information to fixed and wearable displays, guiding real-time decisions on trimming sails to maximize the boat’s speed. When the boat docks, the data are offloaded via a Ruckus wireless mesh link for analysis at the team’s base in San Francisco Bay.
