How it works

MAID System uses Photographic and Infrared technologies on the marine vessel to provide a guidance signal and radar guidance technology which has been perfected over many decades. Electronics in the vessel keep the optical sensors pointed directly at the targeted location relative to the dock. 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. 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. MAID System autonomously stops the vessel at the targeted location and maintains the position until the system is disengaged. All the guidance components (including sensors) are contained within the vessel. No components are incorporated away from the vessel and MAID System can be used on any dock or object worldwide.

The operator need only activate the MAID system with the touch screen monitor. From there, the MAID system accurately controls velocity and calculates safe path of travel to deliver the vessel precisely, carefully and error free in the various docking operations regardless of adverse wind or water currents.
