“Man overboard” detection
Video cameras are frequently used for monitoring the outdoor areas of ships. They continuously record events, but do not trigger alarms. When MRS6000 3D LiDAR sensors are installed, a defined area around the ship is scanned. As soon as a defined object falls through the multi-layered scan area, the crew is notified immediately via an alarm. This enables the crew to promptly view the video recordings and take action, if necessary. The intelligent MRS6000 sensors mask out features such as spray, waves and birds, thereby preventing faulty alarms.
