Secure Docking and Mooring
Based on a unique combination of optical and laser technology, SAM from SeeSAFE is a real Advanced Driver-Assistance System for boats up to the largest megayachts: by following requirements from leading yacht manufacturers, it provides assistance not replacement to the pilot in the docking and mooring maneuvers.
It is very easy to use, intuitive just like the ADAS you have in your car.
Its benefits are:
SeeSAFE:FODS (Floating Objects Detection System) is a system for automatic detection of semi-floating objects at sea. When properly installed on a vessel, it enables detection of large scale marine debris at distances of up to 500 meters during navigation, under any visibility conditions. By triggering an alarm sound in real time, SeeSAFE:FODS allows the captain to initiate emergency procedures, either automatic or manually controlled, to avoid otherwise likely or inevitable collisions.
Onboard radar equipment cannot detect floating objects, because their emerging portion is usually small, flat, and often intermittently submerged by waves. Therefore, during nighttime travel or under poor visibility conditions, vessels are forced to reduce cruising speed to well under 10 knots, in order to limit possible damage from the resulting collisions. Due to its contained size, SeeSAFE:FODS is easily housed together with the radar, even within the same enclosure. By enabling the crew to detect dangerous environmental situations well in advance, and to take proper corrective measures accordingly, it makes a higher cruising speed possible for the vessel. When SeeSAFE:SAM is utilized during regular cruising alongside with SeeSAFE:FODS, it enables driverless cruising at higher speeds even at night, or under conditions of poor visibility. SeeSAFE:FODS is covered by patent.
In order to achieve angular accuracies within 1° or better when detecting floating objects at sea, proper consideration to the following factors must be given:
To overcome those obstacles, SeeSAFE:FODS uses a laser beam emitter coupled with specialized cameras and a stabilizing inertial platform to compensate for the boat’s movements. This setup is able to detect floating objects with high accuracy in real-time, at ranges of up to 500m. Proprietary software then allows SeeSAFE:FODS to compute the exact distance and relative position of the object detected, in real time.
SeeSAFE:FRED is a personal identity control system based on 3D facial recognition, capable of:
In its typical configuration, SeeSAFE:FRED is composed of:
