OceanIO receives up to 150 million new data points from diverse sources which includes nearly 300,000 oceangoing vessels as they report information regarding their geographical position, heading, speed and depth.
Sony’s cargo tracking solution is based on re-usable smart trackers with sensors and a cloud service to gather and upload data, which can be viewed on a web interface.
At the same time, it provides notifications about arrival and departure, positioning, temperature, shock, tilt, and humidity detection with real-time assurance.
Visilion by Sony also aims to allow for more environmentally sensitive decision making about choices of transport and, with the incorporation of data services from the OceanIO platform, Visilion can help its customers to improve efficiency in the supply chain with more detailed real-time visibility on sea.
“GateHouse Maritime’s OceanIO platform combines extensive and comprehensive data sources to provide a robust and scalable foundation to extend the range and functionality of ocean visibility for the Visilion tracking solution,” said Erik Lund, Head of the Tracking Division Visilion at Sony.
“Working with GateHouse Maritime, we will continue the journey to provide customers with unparalleled visibility of their goods for all modes of transport.”
