During the three day event at Fira-Barcelona, hundreds of people stopped by our booth to learn how we plan to make the Cap d’ Agde Marina smart and modem. Some very enthusiastic marina users are very happy to learn that we are making an effort in this direction. Home
Four out of five prototype boat-detecting sensing nodes use a pair microwave motion sensors to monitor two adjacent berths continuously. When a vessel is parked, the sensor, mounted on the floating dock facing the body of the vessel, detects the relative motion between the dock and the vessel. There is…
The boat-detecting sensors are ready! They are being tested at Inria-Paris, and will be deployed at the Cap d’Agde by the end of the 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…
