Description

What We Have

Using the measurement data from Michibiki, the Japanese Quasi-Zenith Satellite, we are now developing an automatic docking system for small boats. Berthing and de-berthing is a difficult issue for regular ocean vessels as well as small boats. Especially since small boats are mostly driven by amateurs, steering can be challenging, leading to many accidents. NJM’s technology solves this problem by changing vessel operation from manual to automatic, only during docking, for safer maneuvering. ・Boats are positioned by satellite surveying technologies such as GPS and Galileo, which are supported by CLAS (Centimeter Level Augmentation Service). Our system enables you to control the position and direction of the boat in order to safely and correctly pull into and leave a dock. ・Originally, boats were equipped with 1 GPS receiver for positioning, which simply allowed for grasping locations. NJM is developing a system where receivers are placed in several locations on the front, back and sides of the boat, enhancing data gathering to the centimeter, allowing you to get the position and heading information you need for precise hull control.

What It Brings

Since recreational boaters only use their boats on rare occasions or at weekends and holidays, many lack experiences when it comes to maneuvering. Especially when docking or leaving the harbor, advanced steering skills are necessary. This makes boaters nervous about causing minor collisions, leading to demands for large amounts of compensation. The system we are developing will eliminate this convenience by aiming for precise automatic docking. Once it is perfected, boaters all over the world can be free from the stress of docking. What’s more, by using this system to automatically find fishing points, the navigator won’t have to look for them, enabling everyone on the boat to concentrate on fishing.

Why Competitive ?

Our technology features the use of multiple positioning satellite data, which we patented for this use in 2019. ・Though many other companies have released similar GPS hull positioning systems, from the standpoint of exact positioning and orientation of the boat, our technology stands out. ・From now on, we are also working on expanding this technology to large ships, and we are thinking about globally expanding our innovative technology to assist in tugboat operations.

How To Be Utilized

On November 29, 2019, our design was registered under patent number 6621102 as a “Vessel Equipped with a Vessel Positioning System”. Products Now in the process of commercialization.
