Nova set to revolutionise with Autopilot technology

Looks like Nova are pushing the boundaries of technology even further. Their bulletin today (1st April 2016) reads;

“With the Thermic Wizard, NOVA is introducing an innovation, which could revolutionise paragliding. It supports pilots when thermalling and is comparable to an autopilot in an aircraft as it centres the wing in the thermal automatically. The Thermic Wizard is a system comprising a number of multisensor-units attached to the wing and harness, which are connected to a tablet via Wifi, ANT+ or Bluetooth LE. This tablet (wirelessly) sends impulses to a high-performance ultrasound servo-system that transmits digital commands to the brake lines.”
