With Watson IoT Platform, SilverHook Powerboats can run real-time diagnostic analytics on racing boats traveling at high speeds.
Silverhook Powerboats produces one of the worlds fastest mono hull watercrafts. Incredible speed combined with ocean conditions is a real challenge for electronic and mechanical equipment as well as the people inside the cockpit. This means monitoring is extremely necessary. The powerboat is equipped with telemetry equipment that gathers 70+ boat/engine related measurements at 100 times per second. This data is then transmitted 5 times per second to onboard computers for monitoring by the team. To help with making the data easier to read and make sure the team doesn’t miss any important anomalies IBM Bluemix has provided the instant platform-as-a-service, which includes:

1) Messaging service (IBM Internet of Things Foundation), to get the telemetry data to the cloud.
2) SPSS Lab version of the Bluemix Scoring Service to conduct the analytics
3) The Bluemix Analytics warehouse for data storage.
