SmartDock

Use Case

Improved visibility and safety for Marine and Shipbuilding

Improving safety and uptime for floating dock environments is imperative for Marine Service and Shipbuilding organizations.

Floating docks carry inherent risks and require extra care in monitoring to avoid accidents and major issues. Equipment and environmental details have traditionally been monitored manually, requiring manual audit processes and alert capabilities.

The Industrial IoT creates new possibilities for this type of existing environment. Connected sensors and monitoring devices can provide real-time monitoring that immediately modernize your floating dock. With deep learning and notification capabilities this approach helps improve both safety and uptime in monitored docking facilities. 

Supported Industries

We have a solution

Real-time alerts and monitoring for your floating dock environment.

This solution use case, provided by Digitread on MindSphere, enables customers to gain better insight into how a floating dock behaves. To extrapolate the critical data, the dock is equipped with various types of sensors that measure the inclination of the dry dock in the water, the temperature of measured components, and the pressure in the ballast tanks. The docks are also equipped with sensors that can detect leaks.

If any of the sensors detect abnormal conditions, alerts are delivered to key users via application, sms, or email. This enables improved safety and rapid maintenance.

Dashboards provide an up to the minute view of current operating conditions, and with historical data tracking, your audit processes are simplified.  

Features


  • Dashboards provide current operating status and conditions.
  • Alerts notify workers of key issues regarding water level, temperature and other enabled events.
  • Insights module gives visibility to historical data regarding dock management and performance.
  • Real-time logging of all connected components.

Benefits


  • Drive ROI through improved uptime and reliability of floating dock environments.
  • Reduce manual efforts logging and monitoring water levels and streamline audit compliance.
  • Increase safety of floating dock environment.
  • Improve decision making ability with insights from historical performance data.
