KNVTS lecture: AlViVi – Breakthrough digitalisation platform
March 8 @ 19:30 - 22:00
To innovate for customers, Alewijnse sought to solve one of the largest challenges for the maritime industry — simplifying the IT architecture required to operate multiple, critical ship systems in a constrained space.
Rather than deploy and manage individual IT architectures spread across the vessel for each control system for propulsion, energy, navigation, communications, electrical, security, and others, Alewijnse developed AlViVi (Alewijnse Virtualisation and Visualisation), a breakthrough digitalisation platform to consolidate process-related systems for dredging, industry, navy, offshore and yachts.
The innovative virtualisation and visualisation (AlViVi) platform acts as a central hub, centralising and integrating all the process systems, and distributing the visualisation of the data to all networked screens on board. Alewijnse is the first to achieve this and is the only company currently able to offer a fully digitalised platform to the maritime market. The first seven AlViVi systems have already been successfully installed on several dredging vessels.
AlViVi additionally provides unique simulation capabilities for training and testing during the design phase of on-board automation systems. Through the recent collaboration with 3D simulation specialist Tree C Technology, Alewijnse is taking this a step further. The specialist software of Tree C adds 3D realism to the simulation of interactions with the environment and the forces at play, providing a realistic experience and a suitable virtual environment. This provides a realistic experience for trainee operators and makes the virtual environment suitable as an accurate test environment for new equipment and control systems. It creates unique opportunities for education, engineering, surveys and live monitoring service using visualisation and augmented reality.
