The e-Wind Tracking Box helps to automatically and safely manage the movements of personnel in an offshore wind farm. Via a real-time overview, the captain and crew can follow and adjust all movements. Because communication with the central coordinator is more accurate, there is a significant increase in safety.
Besides the complete user-flow mapping, CIDES (Brugge) also took care of the complete redesign of the tracking-box. Bram Robeyn was called in to implement the user-friendly interface into a workable product.
