Sensor passes ‘live’ test A newly developed system called Sense4Boat, designed to detect and prevent the most common safety hazards such as fire, water intrusion and battery damage on boats had its first live test in July. A pump on a 16m (52ft) boat, moored up at its home berth in Marina Punat, Croatia had a technical malfunction and started overheating and generating thick black smoke. To make matters worse, it was the middle of the night and the boat owner was fast asleep on the boat. Fortunately, the installed smoke sensor picked up on the growing MITIGATE YOUR RISK hazard and the Sense4Boat system immediately generated an alert, warning the boat owner and the marina staff, allowing for a timely reaction. Thanks to the system and the quick response from the marina staff, nobody was harmed in the incident and the boat suffered only superficial damage. The Sense4Boat system uses smart Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensors and the IoT Sigfox network to detect threats and issue warnings. Devices are very simple and quick to install as they do not connect to a boat’s wiring and the built-in batteries last several years. It is claimed to be the only system that simultaneously notifies the boat owner and the marina in the event of potential hazard.
