How it Works

  • 1
    With a touch of the monitor, the MAID System is engaged, and the vessel’s movement, velocity and direction are autonomously controlled as the system guides the vessel to the targeted location.
  • 2
    MAiD System uses a range of optical photographic and night sensing technologies. The system incorporates environmental awareness using 360 degree photographic mapping sensors.
  • 3
    The PCU receives radio signals from the sensors, determining the distance and direction of the docking location and the trajectory of the vessels path is determined.
  • 4
    The PCU engages the drive systems to maneuver the vessel to follow a safe path of travel at a controlled velocity to the pre selected target location.
