FLIR Systems delivered a marine industry first with the introduction of the Raymarine® navigation technology, ClearCruise™ AR (Augmented Reality), which brings enhanced on water awareness to Raymarine’s family of Axiom® multifunction displays (MFDs). With ClearCruise AR, Raymarine Axiom users can make smarter decisions with physical navigation objects overlaid directly on Axiom’s high-definition (HD) video display. FLIR also announced a new video stabilization module, the Raymarine AR200, which integrates with ClearCruise.
ClearCruise AR video imagery is supported by Raymarine CAM210 HD marine cameras to provide an augmented reality view from any camera position on the vessel. The AR200 video stabilization module includes a precision GPS/GNSS sensor and the same attitude heading reference sensor (AHRS) technology used in Raymarine’s award-winning Evolution™ autopilots. ClearCruise AR accurately displays nearby navigation markers, automatic identification system (AIS) traffic, objects, and waypoints in sync with real-world imagery for instant recognition and making complex navigation and high traffic situations simpler to understand.
“Our new ClearCruise AR technology delivers an intuitive method of combining navigation data with the real world,” said Travis Merrill, President of the Commercial Business Unit at FLIR. “Using Axiom’s powerful video capabilities and our exclusive AR200 video image stabilization technology, ClearCruise AR gives captains greater confidence and peace of mind when navigating busy or unfamiliar waterways.”
