When we think connectivity, we think people, assets, organizations and the exchange of information. Customers and businesses interacting with each other, using every device under the sun, anywhere. All this connection and exchange of information brings value, which accumulates as it’s being shared. It’s the Internet of Things. But, in the maritime industry, we see that many of these connectivity aspects are a challenge for our customers.
This is why Onboard is bringing a Maritime IoT solution to the industry. Our platform can turn your vessels, cargo, machines, systems and sensors into smart devices, in other words, connected things. This connectivity is what will trigger the digital transformation of your business.
How we see connectivity
First, there’s the people connection. Your crew on board, their colleagues on shore, potential business partners, authorities. Everyone needs real-time data in order to work more efficiently together.
Next, there’s the connection to all your machines and systems, and to sensors on board that provides vital information about everything concerning your vessel and what’s on it.
Finally, there’s the challenge of connecting your vessel to the fleet, other assets at sea, and information hubs on shore, and sharing that information on a global scale.
The Onboard platform addresses connectivity issues that occur on all these levels offering a complete integrated solution and full interoperability.
Connecting the maritime world
Our platform connects your people and your assets. It hosts our own industrial applications and boasts connectivity services that will empower anyone who comes in contact with it. From sensors, to your machines and systems on board, to your crew, to your partners, to the industry. Connectivity is happening.
The Onboard platform is made up of two main components, the Onboard Server and the Onboard Cloud. The Onboard platform collects large amounts of raw data from all sensor sources, which is then processed on board and on shore. Data is accessible real-time to the captain on the bridge, crew, other vessels in the fleet, to the shipping company office on shore, or industry partners elsewhere. The Onboard platform is our way of connecting the maritime world.
Making actionable sense out of all this information is the next challenge. Let us show you how our Onboard Applications can automate information flows and guide your business through a digital transformation.
