Introducing our technologies

With a view to the future of shipboard digital transformation, we offer products and solutions with enhanced functionality.
Here are some of the products we have released so far and some examples of our research and development work.

Understanding the surroundings

The AR Navigation System is a navigation and manoeuvring support system for ships that takes full advantage of Augmented Reality technology. The system uses AR technology to superimpose navigational information on images captured by a camera mounted in front of the vessel. Even in adverse weather conditions or at night, when it is difficult to see, the display shows the ship's route and information on other vessels, making navigation much peaceful, safe, and comfortable.

Collision Avoidance Support

In very congested waters, constantly looking at your screen to monitor the movement of other vessels can be a stressful task, increasing tension on the crew. Risk Visualizer is an innovative technology that greatly supports and relieves the crew in these circumstances.

This new technology shows the "navigation paths/zones" of surrounding vessels and alerts mariners through the use of colors when there is a potential risk of approach or collision between your vessel and another vessel. The color displayed depends on the degree of danger and the possibility of a collision. Risk Visualizer technology has been developed using repeated simulations from the best captains and mariners. The accuracy of the danger level assessment made by our algorithm for a given situation is as reliable as that of the most experienced mariners.

Many other improvements are under development to make our system an even more complete aid to safety at sea.

Berthing Assistance

Accidents involving contact with the quay during berthing and unberthing occur far too often on large ships. One of the main contributing factors for this occurrence is that the workload of seafarers during berthing and unberthing is great, and successful manoeuvres depend heavily on the intuition and experience of the crew. It is for this reason that our new technology has been developed to measure the relationship between the hull and the quay with a high degree of accuracy, and to display it to the operator in an easy-to-read manner. This information is conventionally measured visually and communicated verbally to the crew, with the aim of safely berthing and unberthing every time.

We are researching and developing a function that allows the operator to visually grasp the situation by employing a camera coupled with LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) to measure the relative distance and attitude to the landing position with high accuracy and superimposing that data on the camera image.

The algorithm is designed to calculate the distance between the bow and stern of the ship and the quay, utlizing a single installation of equipment on the wing.
