Monitoring Your Boat

BoatSecure is our New Zealand based service for monitoring the key systems on boats.

Using remote monitoring technology to ensure that small problems are detected early and that boat owners have peace of mind that they can go sailing whenever they want.

Satellite IoT Sensing

We are using the next generation of low earth orbit satellite system to develop remote sensing capability.

Bringing low cost monitoring and control to anywhere it is needed.  Our project will provide confidence and reliability for applications that have previously not been feasible.

Satellite IoT Sensing

We are firm believers that remote sensing of assets and resources using satellite systems will create positive outcomes.  We have been investigating and experimenting with the most recent developments for the Internet of Things from space and are undertaking a project to develop practical systems.

The latest generation of low earth orbit satellites espcially for Internet of Things remote sensing applications is creating a new ​scope of capability that we are eager advocates for.  We've spoken to many of the new satellite IoT operators and assesssed their services.

IoT from Space is somewhat of a complex topic, so we can boil the benefits down to this:

  • Low cost - comparable to land based data connection providers and undercutting legacy satellite services

  • Ubiquitous - a goal of global coverage solving the problem of high cost land based wireless systems and connecting regions that are underserved by existing providers

  • Simple - taking care of the complexity of global data connectivity with platform services that are easy to use

We have been awarded project funding for the development of a maritime monitoring service for boats.  To find out more about this project, enquire to partner on your project or dig into our knowledge we are eager to share our experience and connections.

Boat Monitoring

BoatSecure is our New Zealand based service monitoring the key systems on boats to ensure peace of mind for boat owners.

Successfully operating from Auckland, New Zealand BoatSecure is a simple to use app for boat owners that continuously reports the status of key signals from boats with alerts when issues arise.

By providing an early warning of these issues BoatSecure can prevent a cascade of problems.  These problems can often lead to ruined sailing days, costly unscheduled maintenance, insurance claims or loss of your boat.

Tech for Good

Good decisions and outcomes rely on data that is trustworthy and outcomes that are relevant to objectives.

Technology and the derived data are tools to achieve our goals.  No doubt you have heard it said that tools don't have  feelings, and the same goes for using technology for good.  Determing the strategy and objectives is critical to achieving positive outcomes that are meaningful to your organisation and all relevant stakeholders.

Here lies the challenge to success:  what are the boundaries to your operating environment, the strategic objectives you seek and the projects you select to focus investement and effort into?  Avoiding confusion, uncertainty or risk requires focussed thinking in defining the parameters success is measuring by. This is the heart of using technology and data for sustainable outcomes.

We are particularly focussed on Internet of Things applications as it directly relates to data collection that is done remotely, autonomously, reliably and at low cost.  If you are beginning your journey with IoT or want to review your progress we would love to have a discussion.

We can provide the following assistance:

  • Strategic review of technology projects and alignment to sustainable goals

  • Education and training to professionals in using technology, data and the Internet of Things for sustainable outcomes

  • Project support in business planning, project requirements, and development management

We contribute to the post-graduate education programmes at Tech Futures Lab - a New Zealand based specialist school for mature professionals.  TFL is focussed at the leading edge of change for good and supporting people that seek change for positive outcomes.  In particular the programmes: 

  • Masters of Technological Futures - 12-18 months NZ only

  • Connected Environments Certificate - 34 weeks, part time NZ only

  • Internet of Things for Sustainability micro-credential - 10 weeks, part time, online

  • Future Learn IoT and Sustainability - 2 weeks fully online

We have many amazing discussions with individuals and businesses achieving great things using technology, data and the Internet of Things.  Please enquire to be inspired.
