Applications of SMARTShip

SMARTShip Real-time

Real-time software enables shore users to visualise ship’s operational parameters and performance data such as vessel speed, consumption, and essential voyage information in real-time.

Providing a real-time connection enables the superintendent or vessel manager at shore to virtually visit a ship in his/her fleet; viewing ship performance live as well as historically and drill down to individual parameters for each asset.

Key Features

  • 24/7 connection to vessel with real-time dashboards, analysis, notifications, and reports
  • Visualise equipment parameters in real-time and historically
  • Provides live notifications from the ship about alerts and preset conditions
  • Access intelligent analysis combining one or more parameters in real-time
  • View 3rd party integrated weather parameters from the ship’s location
  • Create cases for subsequent communication

SMARTShip functionality

SMARTShip software runs on our Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) platform. IoT platform is a suite of components that enable remote data collection from connected devices and deployment of applications that monitor, manage, and control connected devices.

The platform resides on the cloud as well as local servers onboard which collects data from various data acquisition units (navigation, ECR, CCR), local sensors and various standalone pieces of equipment onboard. The platform plays a pivotal role in equipping our solutions with remote control and real-time monitoring functions, configurable alerts and notifications, pluggable cloud services, and integration with consumers’ smartphones and other devices.

Data Security

SMARTShip allows a swift integration of 3rd party applications from other industry players into the platform. An integrated hardware and software solution is delivered and installed by our personnel on your vessel as well as remote monitoring stations. The ruggedised hardware is built to endure typical harsh conditions aboard ships.

We believe it’s essential to have end-to-end security built-in. Security must permeate through all aspects of data collection including, device booting, authentication, access control, firewalling, transmission, updates, and patches. All communications internal to SMARTShip platform (i.e. ship to shore) wherever data is transmitted over public internet, is fully encrypted using Industry accepted best practices.

Multi-tenant environment

In a multi-tenant environment, each customer’s data is isolated from others through a multi-tenant data architecture. Multi-tenancy is enforced by associating ship data to correct tenant and, using a proprietary data access mechanism that enforces the separation of data by ship owners or operators. We use HTTPS as the standard format for accessing any SMARTShip data using a browser over public internet.

Benefits of SMARTShip

  • Significant (5-10%) cost savings
  • Reduces fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions
  • Real-time visibility of your fleet for on shore personnel
  • Enables energy efficiency benchmarking
  • Meet charterer’s demands and makes the ship commercially attractive
