Automation technology to track measured ship's movements near or berthed at on-/offshore facilities
Our company’s automation technology allows operators to stay in control of a ship’s movements. As for all Frontier Automation control systems, it uses 3D machine vision to automatically detect and track in real time shipping vessels within range of a FPSO, other offshore platform, or onshore berths by providing information on critical distances to mooring infrastructure, on vessel speed, and on accurately measured vessel movement directions and orientations whilst moored. In contrast to competing system technology it reports not only on vessel sway, but also on vessel surge and heave, as well as on all 3 rotational parameters (roll, pitch, yaw). This can be utilized to automatically alarm on movement thresholds that may exceed safe (un-)loading for example.
