OSCAR stands for Optical System for Cognition And Ranging and is the first AI based system, available for sailing yachts and for motor vessels. It alerts you of any floating obstacle on your course – large and small – day and night.
The OSCAR systems are designed to detect hazards that cannot be detected by radars, AIS or sonar. As a result OSCAR prevents collisions with any potential threat a vessel can encounter at sea. Be it other vessels, unidentified floating objects such as logs, buoys or containers, as well as sleeping sea mammals. The system alerts the crew of any potential danger and tracks the position and distance of that threat.
