Nowadays, the global coverage of mobile phone networks is increasing in residential areas. However, in forests, deserts and the sea, there are often very few networks or none at all.
…And because of this lack of networks, a number of problems have arisen during maritime navigation.
Delays in deliveries
At sea, deliveries by merchant ships are often delayed: more than 2/3 of container ships are affected.
Managing the flow of overloaded ports
With a delay of the carriers, it is possible that the ships arrive at the same time. Good management of port entries and exits is necessary.
Loss of containers at sea
According to The World Shipping Council, ICS, IGP&I, ECSA and ASA, the estimated number of containers lost at sea varies from 2,600 to over 10,000 each year. These containers are no longer found or are not found at all.
Accidents at sea
There are many accidents such as collisions with boats or jet skis.
Breakdowns at sea
Every year, ships have been reported missing and lost. The main causes are technical problems with the vessel and lack of supervision.
Problems encountered at ports :
Theft of boats
Thefts of pleasure boats by organised gangs account for more than 1,200 stolen boats each year.
Theft of engines from boats concerns several recreational fleets. We count more than 1,000 stolen engines every year.
HIoTee helps to solve these problems and provide connectivity in these white areas through satellite communication.
With HIoTee products, boats will be equipped with several measurement parameters in order to warn in case of failure, breakdown; alert in case of out of area, alert in case of loss or theft, alert and tracking systems to warn in case of approach to a foreign body and real time geolocation.
Examples of use cases with our HIoTee solutions:
Digitalising ports to facilitate entry and exit
Alerting in case of loss theft of boats or containers
Measuring temperature and vibration
Geolocate ships and seaports
Alert in case of loss or theft
Prevent accidents and collisions
Real-time routing and tracking
