PNautica is innovative solution developed in Brazil, Bulgaria and Thailand that allows to connect every boat to the Internet, track its status, location and get knowledge out of the raw data. In our blog post today, we will dive into details to explain how it actually works.
So PNautica is basically taking care of your boat. But how our system knows what is the condition of each element and when there is a problem so you to be notified?
The answer should start from our unique, especially developed hardware device that we place on the boat. It is completely safe, because it connects and gets the information from the boat network (NMEA 2000) according to all certifications and standards. Thus there is no risk associated with installing the device on your boat.
After our device is connected it starts communicating with our cloud server. It is doing so trough internet utilizing the 3G telecommunication netwrorks. In most countries those netwrorks are well developed so the coverage is very good up to few miles into the see. Most of the leisure boats are usually used around the coast, so there is rarely a problem of no connection.
However, in the event of no connection no information is being lost. Our device recognizes such situation and cautiously stores all the information and is doing so until there is strong enough connection. Then it starts to send all the saved packages and deletes them only after a confirmation from the server that all is being received and saved into the cloud. This ensures that we will not miss something important due to data loss.
When the data arrived to the server it is being stored and analyzed. It basically feeds our smart algorythms in order to provide a valuable insights on the boat’s condition. They are running non stop and in the first hint of a problem will alert you, so you can react as quickly as possible.
Moreover, you will be offered an option to require help from our nearby partners. If you allow so, then the system will access your boat’s location and calculate the nearby companies that are able to help for this particular problem. Then all it is necessary is to choose a company to perform the fix/maintenance of your vessel.
