People Tracking System
Connect wireless to people,equıpment,assest and cargo
During emergency situations onboard ships and rigs, gaining POB control is a top priority. Existing solutions and procedures are mainly analogue, based on manual headcounts and paper sheets. This is a time consuming and complicated process often leading to dangerous situations and potential loss of lives. Delays in identifying and locating missing personnel leads to delays in mobilising assistance and providing potentially life-saving treatment.
Connect POB utilizes smart ‘low power’ wireless IoT sensor technology providing on-board emergency response teams with an immediate overview and position of all personnel in real time. This information can be shared with different locations – such as fleet management offices, shipowner offices, insurance companies, coastal services and rescue departments – through cloud-based services, enabling enhanced decision support and assistance in emergencies.
ConnectPOB is a robust, scalable and affordable solution well-suited for both existing assets, as well as for new vessels and rigs under construction. In:Range consists of the following main elements:
– Personal tags
– Vessel interior and exterior sensors
– Central unit for processing data
– Screen for visual presentation or add-in to existing screens on bridge
The vessel interior and exterior sensors are positioned based on the General Arrangement to ensure complete coverage. As personnel move around, their tag is identified by the nearest interior sensor, and wirelessly transmitted to the central unit. A connected PC with In:Range software collects the crew location information from the central unit, and presents it on a visual interface.
ConnectPOB is delivered as a “plug and play” solution, and can be easily installed by the crew during normal operation. The system is wireless, with no cabling required between sensors.
In addition to real-time location of personnel In:Range can be expanded to cover additional valuable services such as:
– Safety alarm on bracelet
– Virtual area barriers
– Area access control
– Area responsible support for work permits etc.
Our unique wireless connectivity technology can also be used as a platform for easy wireless sensor data transport and asset tracking. During 2021 ScanReach will launch In:Connect, a stand-alone product tailored for this functionality.
