We are making sets of prototype sensors in Paris to deploy at Cap d’ Agde marina in mid-August.
On July 6th and 7th, Ziran and Thomas were at UCL attending invited IOT workshop. Ziran presented the SmartMarina project during the workshop and identified a potential collaborator to test a vision-based vessel identification system.
Ziran attended Bretagne regional conference at St-Malo, targeting collaboration and innovation in marine envionment.
A new Doppler radar movement sensor is being tested in a marina similar to Cap d’ Agde. The new sensor, mounted below the catwalk, can detect even the slightest movement of the boat with respect to the sensor.
Thomas and Ziran will be at VivaTechnology in Paris on June 17 to promote SmartMarina project. SmartMarina will be featured in Hall 1 booth D31, on 17 June. You are very welcome to drop by our booth during the all-day event. Program agenda: https://www.inria.fr/centre/paris/agenda/vivatechnologylink. Event website: https://vivatechnology.com/
We developed the first wireless boat-detection sensor prototype at Inria. Each features two Maxbotix ultrasonic range finder to detect if boats are present.
We deployed a test network consisting of seven nodes at the heart of Cap d’ Adge marina. This first deployment allows us to verify the connectivity between nodes in the marina environment. Over the weekend, all the nodes remained perfectly connected! We are now moving to the next task: testing the…
