2023 Sailing Software Updates for SEA.AI 

Our latest sailing software update V7.0 features for our marine camera are an improved user interface with easily switchable navigation modes, customizable warnings and intelligent alarms, improved object detection and recognition accuracy, and enhanced thermal imaging capability.

New design and enhanced user interface

Based on feedback from customers, a redesigned and simplified user interface makes the system easier to operate and features a new dark design and a night mode option for operation in the hours of darkness.

Harbour, Coastal, and Offshore navigation modes

The innovative new interface allows users to quickly and easily switch between three pre-set navigation modes:

Harbour mode – for use in harbours and marinas where users can use the system’s cameras to help them navigate, but visual warnings are not displayed, and audible alarms are silenced to avoid distraction.

Coastal mode – for use on coastal passages where visual warnings and single audible alarms are triggered for objects identified as a collision risk.

Offshore mode – for use on offshore passages where detected objects trigger alarms that are repeated at regular intervals until the situation becomes safe.

Three threat levels for optimum risk awareness 

Another new feature in the software update is a set of three threat levels created to give users optimum risk awareness across all three navigation modes.

Each of the three levels include colour coded visual indications of detected objects – with anything assessed as a collision risk also visually tagged with an impact symbol.

Additionally, detected objects trigger a range of audible warnings (single note) and alarms (multiple note), that increase in intensity across the three threat levels.

The new update allows users to easily customize the alarm distance parameters to suit their individual needs, weather or traffic conditions and sea state.

Blue – Distant or low risk objects detected. Audible alarms and warnings are silenced.

Yellow – Closer objects detected. Audible warnings (single note).

Red – Nearby objects detected. Audible alarms (multiple notes). Objects that come within a predefined safety zone trigger a constant audible alarm.

Improved object detection and recognition accuracy

Built around a powerful artificial intelligence engine, the performance of SEA.AI’s marine camera systems are constantly evolving thanks to continuous data acquisition and machine learning.

The latest software update features increased levels of daylight object detection and recognition accuracy through the application of enhanced machine learning algorithms.

Enhanced thermal imaging capability

The application of a new two-step thermal image enhancement process in this update has improved both the sharpness and contrast of the system’s thermal images – making them easier for users to accurately interpret what is going on around their vessel in low visibility conditions.

“SEA.AI continues to drive the evolution towards a future of smarter, safer navigation through pioneering core technology leadership and unparalleled field-tested experience,” said SEA.AI chief technical officer, Raphael Biancale.

“Our customers are our most important innovation partners in the ongoing development of the user interface, and we are delighted to release this new software update with so many great features and a new design created based on their feedback and ideas.”

 

How to update

Make sure you have downloaded the latest version of the “SEA.AI Navigation App” for iOS or Android on your smartphone or tablet.

Connect to your boat or MFD WIFI network to access the SEA.AI System. Start the SEA.AI Navigation App on your mobile device.
The “Update available” popup will automatically appear on your screen if a new update is available. Click “Yes” to update the system to the latest software version.

Attention: The Update process can involve multiple system restarts – connection to the mobile device will be lost – Updating and restarting will take several minutes – do not shut off the system.
