BoatPilot is the first, free integrated marine navigation service with augmented reality capabilities for private and commercial yachting markets.
PRECISE NAVIGATION INFORMATION BoatPilot allows yachtsmen to easily track marine routes and access the most relevant information on coastal objects; including charts, navigation signs, reference data, maritime laws and regulations in a specific region. The cloud-based infrastructure allows BoatPilot users to add and update the existing database and generate relevant content, which is checked and supported by other members in the yachting community. This structure leads to creating the most complete and precise navigation information database in the world. In addition to general information about coastal objects and services, BoatPilot also includes professional comments, photos, and sketches.
AUGMENTED REALITY FUNCTION BoatPilot supports an augmented reality (AR) function, which allows the skipper to use AR glasses to see all necessary data incorporated into actual surroundings, and avoid distractions by the traditional dash. This feature is especially useful during poor visibility conditions, or at night.
FREE TO USERS BoatPilot is completely free to all end users. Unlike most existing marine navigation systems on the market, our product is uniquely developed for private yachtsmen and small yachting businesses. It is not an updated, or reworked, version of military or large commercial navigation systems.
ADVERTISING BoatPilot is more than just a marine navigation tool, although navigation is definitely its main feature. BoatPilot is a marketplace that provides businesses of any size – from large brands to small seaside restaurants – effective and convenient access to the international yachting market, which is estimated to reach $74.7 billion by 20221 . Best of all, BoatPilot advertising works even when the user has no internet access.
WE PLAN TO:
• become the world’s leading marine navigation solution for mobile devices (phones and tablets), and built-in navigation systems produced by equipment manufacturers;
• provide the yachting industry a convenient and fully functional platform to advertise products and services in a market estimated to be worth over $200 billion annually.
