SMART MARITIME NAVIGATION
Sea Machines technology is proven to increase productivity, predictability, and efficiency while reducing operational risk on the water.
The company has developed leading vessel intelligence systems that enable mariners to work smarter and delegate routing effort to advanced self-piloting technology. Sea Machines comes standard with multi-modal situational awareness, including vision-based object recognition and tracking, anti-collision capabilities and data connectivity.
Rolls Royce and Hamilton Jet have both partnered with Sea Machines to provide their command and control technology as part of the engine management systems.
Sea Machines products are available in Australia through EdgeROV.
HOW IT WORKS
As soon as it is immersed in the water, the iBubble autonomous underwater drone automatically switches on and detects divers in their immediate environment
Once this step is completed, he accompanies the diver equipped with a Wireless Underwater Controller. iBubble will follow you during your immersion for 1 hour in silence and will not interfere in any way marine life. The connected bracelet allows, thanks to a wheel, to change pre-recorded mode and so point of view.
A number of options are possible : – Follow me : the drone will follow you – 360° shot : make 360 degree footage – Zoom in/zoom out : easy to understand!
HOW IT WORKS
This wireless underwater drone offers various autonomous diving modes. While underwater, users can easily select which mode they want to activate thanks to the waterproof bracelet controller.
The iBubble personal cameraman is also able to automatically return and clip onto the diver when running out of battery. Moreover, in case of an emergen cy, this wireless underwater filming drone automatically resurfaces.
The commercial marine industry has an accident rate exceeding that of cars and airliners. Many on-water accidents result from inherent human limitations, such as fatigue, tedium and distraction, that cause
loss of attention during long transits or confusion in a very open domain without apparent lanes. Tried-and-true technologies, such as marine radar and AIS data, offer supplemental support to a human operator, but they have limitations and require interpretation and mariner training.
To overcome these challenges Sea Machines has revolutionising marine navigation with data-driven intelligence, autonomy, and connectivity. They have designed autonomous command and control technology and long-range computer vision perception and are aggressively deploying systems on vessels operating around the world.
Vessels enabled with Sea Machines autonomous technology benefit from the system’s dynamic obstacle avoidance capabilities, which operators can choose to activate during planned voyages or missions. This system never fatigues and consistently operates around the clock, even during times of low light or poor visibility. Sea Machines’ systems’ combine data from radar, GPS, AIS, electronic charts and computer vision into one intuitive display so marine pilots can make more timely and informed decisions.
HOW IT WORKS
The SM300 is an autonomous self-piloting system that is always-on-watch and enables off-boat remote command.
The SM300 provides operational domain awareness, telemetry and attitude to a remote commander via a chart-based user interface, tracked targets, video and warnings. These are generated by cameras, sensors and other equipment located on and off the vessel. On-board machinery, instrumentation and payload data also stream to the user interface.
Pilot the vessel from a remote location command centre with full access to the vessels systems and controls.
Control one or more “daughter” vessels from a Mothership using the Collaborative mode.
HOW IT WORKS
The SM200 is a rugged and portable wireless-helm system that provides full-bridge control away from the wheelhouse for up to 1km range.
SM200 readily integrates with new or existing vessels and allows mariners to manage vessel control from personal locations that offer improved communications, greater visibility or increased safety. No longer bound to a fixed control station, vessel operators using the SM200 have propulsion and steering control in their hands, as well as remote control of auxiliaries and payload equipment.
