Tuco Marine Group has introduced remote controlled navigation
systems for the ProZero Workboats, offering autonomous
Working together with Sea Machines, Tuco Marine Group can now
provide the ProZero series, delivered with a system that makes
the vessels autonomous and remote controlled.
The system can be embedded into a wide variety of boats in the
ProZero series, making them self-piloting, increasing
productivity and keeping personnel safe from potential harm.
Tuco Marine presently offers the system in the Prozero DCW 9 m
Arctic workboat, ProZero DCW 15 m ROV support vessel, ProZero 11
m patrol vessel, and ProZero 11 m pulling drone. But Tuco said
the system is easy to embed into any ProZero vessel, and all of
the boats in the ProZero series have potential to become a
Sea Machines Robotics' new system, called RC NXT, can be
incorporated into an existing or newly built ProZero model. With
the RX NXT installed in the boat, it can be controlled wirelessly
from shore or from a mother vessel.
The Command System provides PLC-based wireless control of the
workboat and is suited for day-vessel operations such as
workboats, tugs and launches operating within 1,000 m of the
The Autonomous Navigation System uses vessel-based sensors and
proprietary algorithms to give the boat a degree of
self-awareness, enabling her to efficiently self-motor from
point-to-point while avoiding active and passive obstacles or
collaborate in tandem with another vessel.
