Offshore activities including maritime transport faces the inherent risk of loss of humans at sea. This activity proposes to develop a multi-sensor network solution that has several means to detect, characterise, classify and track humans going overboard in an all environmental conditions. The solution will adapt several sensor technologies that all have the ability to support the solution under various environmental conditions. If used jointly and in-combination the total capability will prove reliable with a very low false-alarm rate. The project will develop the prototype solution and demonstrate the viability thereof jointly with leading end-users in the maritime industries. The three leading SMEs will receive the industrial designs (including all IPR) of the total system and the end-users will have rights to use the system developed during the project. Three industrial RTD-performers are selected to perform the majority of the cost-reduction and industrialization work.
