Wärtsilä SmartMove Suite brings together various tools for automated capabilities to assist the crew with challenging manoeuvres such as docking and undocking, harbour entry, or quay-to-quay transit. Advanced motion prediction provides the operator with a complete overview of the vessel’s movement to enhance situational awareness and improve safety of operations.
The software automatically controls the full manoeuvring of the vessel. However, manual intervention and single coordinated joystick control are possible at any time. The automatic function allows the ship’s officers to focus on situational awareness outside the wheelhouse, improving the reliability and efficiency of operations. By providing consistent and repeatable operations, the SmartMove Suite increases safety and reduces fuel consumption.
