The Scooner ™ Project (Smart Context aware On and Off board Nautical Emergency Rescue) was born from a project idea by knowhedge™ that came after the tragedy that hit the Costa Concordia off the island of Giglio on January 13, 2012 and that caused the death of 32 people including passengers and crew members.
The Scooner Project aims to combine traditional safety methods and systems in the marine environment, with the new frontiers of the Internet of Things (IOT) and Machine Learning in order to experiment with new solutions for a long-standing problem, that of the first hour. emergency management in the nautical field, with the aim of making life saving at sea ever more efficient and effective.
In the context of the ™ Project knowhedge coordinated the general design and specification part of the solution and designed, built and patented an IoT device based on BLE 5.1 technology. for distance and tag position tracking using the new Angle of Arrival (AoA) technology.
