The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute has introduced a new measuring system with which the forces that occur during sailing can be determined precisely at any point on the sail. This makes it possible to measure and adjust the optimal trim for wind, water conditions, and any other factors that might arise, and to retrieve them at any time. The system is based on "fiber Bragg grating" (FBG) sensors that are recorded in optical fibers.
