Bridge monitoring at the Port of Antwerp
In the Port of Antwerp’s pursuit of a fully automated port, system designers sought a sensor that would reliably detect ships on their approach towards bridges. This detection was required over water, 24 hours a day, in all weather and lighting conditions. Susceptible to fog and poor weather conditions, camera technology could not provide such performance, and as such Navtech’s Industrial sensor was selected for a trial.
During the trial, analysis was carried out to determine the number of detections and false alarms incurred, and the system achieved a 100% success rate.
