.motion is an “optimal control” solver.

It will compute the optimal trajectory in time of any parameters of the boat, along a dynamic event, like a take off, a bare away, even a tack or a gibe.

The output is the optimal choreography of boat controls to pull the best manoeuvre possible.

The result can then be used to

  • make design decisions ( appendages, systems, energy, cg position… )
  • develop controllers ( loads, speed, accuracy, energy, targets, logic )
  • benchmark .sim or real sailing
