• The tech behind revolutionizing the way we navigate our waterways

    Med: Kristian Sloth Lauzus and Julian Erskine, Flight Control Systems Engineer - Robotics Engineer på Candela

    Electric hydrofoiling boats are a relatively new type of watercraft that use advanced technology to fly above the water’s surface, reducing drag and thereby increasing energy efficiency. However, these boats also require sophisticated control systems to maintain stability.

    In this presentation, we will be discussing the control systems software used in electric hydrofoiling boats, as well as some of the challenges and opportunities that come with developing and implementing this technology.


    So whether you’re a boating enthusiast, an engineer, or simply curious about the latest trends in marine technology, we hope you’ll find this presentation informative and engaging.

    Kristian received his Masters in Electronics and Electrical Engineering from the Danish Technical University and is currently the Head of Control Systems at Candela Technology, considered the world leading producer of hydrofoiling electric boats and vessels. His main interests are in embedded devices and control systems. He loves mathematics, solving complex problems and computer programming and has advanced skills in C and C++ and competent with Python, Java including Android development, Matlab, C#, Bash, Perl, Verilog, VHDL and various others. In 2022, he received the SKAPA Förebild award for creating the control system at Candela.


    Julian Erskine is a robotics engineer, with interest in control, motion planning, and sensor fusion. He completed his PhD in vision-based multi-UAV formation control at the Ecole Centrale de Nantes in 2021, after graduating with a MSc from the Ecole Centrale de Nantes, and B.Eng in mechanical engineering from Dalhousie university. He is now working on control systems for electric hydrofoiling boats and vessels together with Kristian and Candela Technology.
