Safe and precise sailing, through advanced assistance systems.
When the situation demands precise manoeuvres, relying on GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) alone is not enough. Alternative ultra-reliable positioning technologies have become a necessity. Wärtsilä Smart Sensors are the digital outlook that you can always depend on. We use advanced laser, radar, and camera technology to provide both local position information (where the vessel is relative to its surroundings) as well as situational awareness (what is around the close vicinity of the vessel).
Our Smart Sensor technologies can assist with demanding manoeuvres, even at high speed and in shallow waters, such as autodocking, provide precise position, situational awareness, and hazard detection, improving safety in increasingly crowded ports and harbours.
