The client is an Icelandic fleet chain operator founded in late 2018. The team comes from a diverse background, ranging from business development, to mechanical engineering, boat building, education, banking, and medical devices.
The client wanted to develop a next-gen intelligent platform to measure impact forces affecting the boats during trips. Their aim was to minimize the likelihood of injuries on high-speed boats, in particular injuries resulting from wave slamming forces. By collecting and analyzing data on wave slamming acceleration forces, weather and sea conditions, provided operators with forward-looking insights and guidance on hazardous conditions to enhance and ensure safety at sea.
The solution consists both of an on board solution for vessel captains and an admin portal for fleet managers. The captain monitors the speed, movements and wave impacts in vessels, guiding captains with speed limiters to ensure that hazardous movements are minimized. Admin makes use of the trip data, where a fleet manager can track and monitor vessels in real time, receive detailed trip insights, reports, and crew and vessel performance statistics. Smart & data-driven solution is connecting the boating telematics system that delivers real time situation guidance, monitoring and trip insights. On board, it generates a suggested safe speed for operators to follow based on sea conditions, wave impacts and actual speed. It connects the vessel in real time with a fleet management system for performance monitoring and alerts. At the end of each trip, a report with insights into each trip, captain and vessel is automatically generated.
The tablet connects with a Bluetooth based accelerometer device to get raw data and processes if further to derive the impact forces.
Speed recommendation based on analytical data of weather conditions, current speed and impact detected
Cloud based real-time weather updates for the captain
SMS alerts on impact to the fleet manager
Capture trip experience
Fleet and captain management
Maximum allowed speed configurations at company level
Configurable impact calculation parameters at platform level
Real-time fleet monitoring from admin portal – impact count, alerts, route and speed recommendations
Impact and speed analysis chart for each trip on everyboat route in trip reports
Captain & boat performance statistics
Subscription management & real-time reports at the end of the trip
Insurers benefit from lower claims frequency, can track time of accidents, and access risk & claims data. They are slso able to offer customizable policies & safety incentives
Captains receive insights through the application and can give guidance, alerts, and forecasts to the crew & passengers for safety. The application also aids in trip review, incident logging, and trip & operation profile details.
Now, the owner/manager can monitor operational insights for trips, crew & vessels, safety culture & cost efficiency. Detailed trip insights and reports promote a safe culture and improve efficiency.
The Internet of Things(IoT) enabled application provides insights to the builder about warranty, repair, maintenance data, fuel consumption & efficiency data that helps builders in boat maintenance.
Intelligent speed guidance system, adaptable to weather, sea state and predefined limits set by the fleet manager with wave impact & speed alerts.
