MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS/SMART TECHNOLOGY few times every day so as to reach maximum berth occupancy. Achieving maximum berth occupancy Nauticspot helps marinas to achieve maximum occupancy by offering a smart management system. Smart sensors to detect the presence or absence of a boat at each berth are wireless, fixed to the docks, and linked either to Nauticspot software or preexisting software e.g. Harbour Assist, Pandora, SmartWater, Seaport and others. The software displays an interactive map, creating new opportunities to boost income from transient boaters, and collects different types of data. Boaters are guaranteed to find their berth available when they return to port and, to take things even further by providing a high level of security, a signal is sent to the boater when the boat leaves its berth. Nauticspot has continued to innovate in real-time berth supervision with a brand new solution called Marina View. This computer vision solution comprises synchronised cameras working with AI to supervise the water area, detecting identified events like boat departures or arrivals. This solution can be extended to other applications e.g. intrusion detection or speed control in order to reduce incidents in the marina basin. Marina View is tailor made for the marine environment and offers the following: • Certified quality IP68 • 1 berth = 1 sensor • Wireless ioT system • Quick to install features • Encrypted Lo-Ra network • Long-range and low consumption signal • Ultra-resistant materials (antivandalism and impact protection) • 5-year warranty • A mobile app The mobile app The Nauticspot app enables all administrative tasks to be accomplished remotely. From the dashboard, staff can manage all the information released to users as in a digital marina. A safety module helps to ensure boater safety. The marina manager can also promote the destination by highlighting events, activities etc. The app is branded with the name of the marina or harbour entity - “Port de Saint-Tropez”, “Marina de Valencia”, “SPL Ports de Menton”. The mobile app is also supported by presence sensors – when a boater leaves a berth, he receives a mobile alert no later than 20 minutes after departure. He is invited to respond, giving his return date before he is out of contact when at sea. The harbour office is thus automatically informed about berth availability and can increase visitor berth capacity. The marina manager receives statistics relating to navigation flows that can be used to change perspective and better improve management. For example, some marinas establish incentive schemes to reward the most active sailors. Optimising management benefits Marinas are now taking full advantage of technology that was previously reserved for very specific industries. IoT (Internet of Things) brings a better quality service offering to yachtsmen while also reducing marina management costs. Optimising marina management is the best way to boost marina activity and enhance the attractiveness of coastal cities. Here’s how smart marinas benefit by installing Nauticspot equipment: • Reduced costs Berth and mooring field real-time supervision saves times and can reduce fuel costs. • Stopovers Real-time supervision increases marina berth capacity and efficiency, and available berths can be quickly assigned to visitors. Thanks to the mobile app, boaters can tell the office when they are leaving and returning with just two clicks. The marina office knows the precise availability period for each berth. • Economic solution The cost of purchasing a presence sensor is covered by revenue from the very first visitor to each berth; an immediate return on investment. • Circular and blue economy upgrading By increasing berth capacity, Nauticspot boosts local tourism and enhances nearby economic development. 50 – July/August 2022
