$1.8M Marine Safety Training Online Project

This Newfoundland and Labrador-led project will accelerate mixed-reality safety training development to offer faster and more accessible digital training options across marine industries. This project will enable workers to develop critical worksite specific competencies through engaging and challenging simulation training programs. Simulation training is a safer, more effective option to training than existing forms.

BridgeVUE Project

BridgeVUE is a made-in-Canada solution that leverages emerging technology to enhance marine navigation by contextualizing radar data over an individual’s field of vision, in real time, regardless of visibility. By using an augmented reality (AR) headset and combining it with navigational data, vessel crew will have the capability to overlay mission critical information over their field of vision even when visibility is near zero, increasing their situational awareness and improving safety.

Unmanned Digital Twinning Project

This Atlantic Canada-led project will develop an innovative product for digital twinning of underwater infrastructures, without the need for external specialists working in remote offshore locations. Upon successful introduction of the project, conventional offshore ROV/vessel crew will be able to confidently collect high quality image data for post-processing digital twins, guided by way of real-time 3D reconstruction giving feedback on image quality and coverage.
