IoT Monitoring Solution for Electric Boats
BRNKL Black is a remote monitoring system designed to provide near real-time status and alerts from electric or fuel-powered boats. When placed on board an electric-powered vessel, it communicates via cellular to track and monitor the vessel and its electric motor’s health. The system allows the Royal Canadian Navy to monitor the health of all the vessels at one time using the BRNKL app on a computer or mobile device to see both fleet and individual vessel monitoring.
In addition to monitoring geofencing, position, speed, heel, pitch, impact, and battery voltage, BRNKL Black also tracks battery state of change, speed, range, power output, and more to measure the performance of the electric motor. The system also offers security features such as door/window, motion, and laser sensors for added protection.
By comparing the data from these two types of engines, the RCN can make informed decisions about the performance and efficiency of electric motors, potentially leading to significant cost savings and environmental benefits.
