FLIR Systems, Inc. have announced 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. 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 have also announced a new video stabilisation 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.
‘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 stabilisation technology, ClearCruise AR gives captains greater confidence and peace of mind when navigating busy or unfamiliar waterways.’
ClearCruise AR for Raymarine Axiom, Axiom Pro and Axiom XL multifunction navigation displays is compatible with the forthcoming LightHouse 3.7 OS update, which Axiom users will be able to download at www.raymarine.com/lighthouse.
