TriM at Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Thanks to the very accurate decision support system developed in the framework of the Rio 2016 Austrian Sailing Federation project, TriM athletes got three medals during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
The decision support tool was developed during a three years participatory project conducted both in Brazil and in Europe, involving different actors such as science and technology experts, social science specialists, sailors and coaches. The tool is able to integrate the reliable wind and current forecasts issued by TriM experts together with quantitative and qualitative analysis, including visual signs on the racing area. This makes the output meaningful and immediately understandable, resulting in a very effective system for planning winning strategies.
