09 Apr 2015

The inaugural C-Prize is an open innovation challenge focused on developing UAV technology for the film and screen industry. NZ-based students, innovators, and entrepreneurs are now invited to submit their initial concepts to overcome three UAV technology challenges - improving the ability to record and reproduce high-definition sound, operate in rough weather, and track objects for augmented reality and visual effects.

Entries close on 5 July 2015, and are open to individuals based in New Zealand or teams with two or more members residing in New Zealand.

The competition is co-sponsored by Kiwi UAV and technology companies Animation Research Ltd, Aeronavics, Shotover Camera Systems, and Park Road Post.

ARL @ IBM Interconnect

01 Mar 2015

Silverhook Racing founder Nigel Hook and ARL CEO Ian Taylor took to the stage at IBM Interconnect 2015 in Las Vegas last week, with an update on our real-time Powerboat application. Built in 3 weeks last year, and a great example of cloud collaboration between 5 companies spread all around the globe, the application harnesses the "data ocean" as powerboats race through the real one. Real time analysis is essential to the SilverHook operation - if there’s a problem with an engine during racing the team need to deal with it immediately, or the engine could blow up.
