Abstract [en]

In this paper, an algorithm that calculates the direction of the wind from the directions of sailors during fleet races is proposed. The algorithm is based on a 1-D spatial convolution and it is named Convolution Based Direction Filtering (CBDF). The CBDF-algorithm is used in the TracTrac race client that broadcasts sailboat races in real-time. The fact that the proposed algorithm is polynomial makes it suitable, to be used as a real-time application inside TracTrac, even for large fleets. More concretely, we show that the time complexity of the CBDF-algorithm is O(n2), in the worst-case, where n > 0 is the number of boats in competition. It is also shown that in more realistic sailing scenarios, the CBDF-algorithm is in fact a linear algorithm.
