Linked for years to the America's Cup, the team of multinational technology company lives up to it with the use of advanced data analysis in real and IoT time, thanks to the thousand sensors distributed on the ship and between members crew connected to a database of the company.
Oracle It leads for years closely linked to the America's Cup with his team Oracle Team USA, A relationship that goes far beyond mere sponsorship. Technology analysis of data in real time has been an integral part of one of the biggest sporting milestones in the history of the sport in 2015, when the team rallied to win 8-1 against the victory that year.

A ellos se añaden los de la propia tripulación, que recogen datos como la frecuencia cardiaca, la transpiración o los niveles de ácido láctico, además de las horas que pasan en el barco y la energía que gastan. Gracias a estos sensores es posible crear programas individuales de entrenamiento y nutrición para maximizar el rendimiento de los miembros del equipo.
The analysis of millions of data from external sources (such as weather patterns or wave data, etc.) to help predict the winds, with an accuracy of half knot along the entire route of this competition are part of this technology deployment and connected in real time allowing the team to save a crucial time in the race to win the America's Cup.
