Raceix is an Irish software company operating exclusively in the recreational marine sector. Raceix is developing a software solution called BoatingOS with the integration of a data collection platform called MarLab (a crowd-sourced floating marine laboratory). This effectively creates a data ecosystem of collection, interpretation, and accessibility – all executed within a live and connected system. At present, only 20% of actual available marine data from international governmental bodies are used in chart plotters, undermining boaters ability to make informed decisions.
Raceix works with regulatory bodies to unlock this data for the benefit of users. They aim to make an innovative digital product for the blue economy, which will aid EU marine research, help boaters and coastal communities understand changes prompted by climate change, and create high-value jobs.
