HandsOn Systems are continuously on the look-out for new opportunities to test their technologies and conduct research to improve their products in real life situations. The company was recently invited by Voomquest to be their technology partner by providing a number of services during local powerboat races, including GPS tracking, remote monitoring, timekeeping, Facebook Live streaming and drone footage.
The second race of this year last month was run in inclement Maltese weather. A great deal of data and feedback were collected. Thanks to the technology provided by HandsOn Systems, Race Control could view the status of each powerboat, its velocity and position in real time, and also provided other race timing data vital for race officials.
Mr. Farrugia said that the company intends to continue to develop the technology aspect of these races by monitoring other parameters of the powerboat to increase further the safety during the races.
“We have a roadmap that we are following, and we have ample time to conduct research and prepare for the forthcoming races. I am confident that we will continue to support this event,” he said.
