WiseControl™ is TideWise's intuitive control system . It was created to provide the operator a robust remote operational interface. The operator is responsible for managing the vessel 100% of the time, but may choose to use some functions of the control system to spare him/her from simple tasks (such as autonomous route execution, maintenance of point position etc.).
As it is an unmanned vessel, the control software was developed following the best practices used in the robotics industry and was extensively tested, firstly in simulations in order to avoid risks to the vessel and the environment. Thinking of the safety of operations, special care was taken in detecting failures of critical subsystems and in making the transition to a safe mode, in case such failures may occur.
The vessel can be controlled by both the portable control station (WiseHelm) and the fixed control station (WiseBridge).
