Globe Tracker’s Sense Vessel solution developed together with maritime IoT, Wi-Fi and cellular services leader Wireless Maritime Services (WMS), and LTE core network software provider Druid, have announced an expanded feature set for easy-to-use vessel mobile services empowering seafarers to provide superior and safer container management at sea.
The GT Sense Vessel solution consists of an onboard private 4G LTE cellular network which can wirelessly communicate with Globe Tracker IoT enabled reefer containers on any size vessel, with the ability to monitor containers locally and transmit information over satellite to land based central control centers. These features enable crew members to respond in real-time to container incidents on vessels.
“The manual monitoring of reefer containers at sea is a complex and often inefficient process, and crew safety is always of paramount importance – especially during rough seas. Onboard wireless IoT networks are simpler, more efficient, reduce potential damage or loss of cargo loads, and provide additional safety to crew members”, said Don Miller, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Globe Tracker.
Globe Tracker Sense Vessel is enhanced with an onboard bay load plan viewer to manage containers from a single console on the bridge. This feature eliminates, or removes, the need for manual inspection. Crew members are also equipped with mobile devices to allow the receipt and management of alarms and notifications from anywhere on the ship – including cargo holds and crew areas. Read More
