Advanced Assistance Systems
SPECS for short, Wärtsilä Smart Panoramic Edge Camera System provides a 360° vessel view, from edge of the hull to the horizon, streamed directly to the bridge in real-time.
The Wärtsilä Smart Panoramic Edge Camera System provides 360° situational awareness in real-time for the vessel to improve safety.
The Camera pods have been specifically designed to cope with the harshest marine environments, along with a powerful video processing system. This provides a super-wide field of view and integrated motion reference units. This gives an accurate Birds Eye View (BEV) of the near field of the vessel, primarily used for assistance with docking and close-range manoeuvres. A superimposed grid indicates the distance to objects around the vessel and a measurement tool provides distance and bearing to selected objects in the live video. The system can connect to onboard navigation systems to extract AIS and GNSS data for the Augmented Reality (AR) views.
