raymarine powerboats“But what course is that ship taking? Do I cross with that boat or do I pass it?” How many times have these questions come to our minds without us having the tools to give us an answer other than our own experience and what our eyes tell us. But as of today that is no longer the case, and we tell you about it directly from METS in Amsterdam, the most important marine accessories fair held in the Netherlands every year.

ClearCruise, augmented reality in motorboating

Raymarine ‘s ClearCruise is the system that brings augmented reality to the boat. What do we mean by “augmented reality”? That through these displays we will be able to have information that we otherwise would not be able to know such as the exact distance a boat in front of us is, the speed at which it is going and even the name of the unit. You are certainly wondering, “Yes, but how does it work?” The answer is in a swiveling camera connected to a display that synchronizes all the information we need with a very simple interface.

That’s the world Raymarine opens up with ClearCruise, a wealth of data that helps mariners make decisions in the most excitable moments, such as a return to port with traffic. Managing these circumstances, a man overboard, but also a long cruise are times when having such information can prove crucial, such as when we are not familiar with the area in which we are sailing.
