Real-time detection of cruise ship man overboard (MOB) events with N3N


Man Overboard (MOB) events are a common occurrence in the cruise industry. Yet, few cruise ships in operation today have a system for real-time detection of man overboard events, which on average, occur 22 times per year. Typically, MOB events are reported by someone who happens to notice the fall or by a member of the person’s party who reports the person missing. However, because the survival rate of MOB events requires accurate and timely detection – a more accurate, efficient system is needed to detect MOB events, that goes beyond the camera and imaging systems currently deployed in cruise ships.

N3N’s real-time operations visualization platform seamlessly integrates and displays data from cameras, video management systems, sensors and video analytics, such as PureTech Systems‘ best of breed Man Overboard Detection System, in a single view to enable faster, more accurate detection and confirmation of MOB events with relevant insights and situational awareness to help cruise staff and first responders make smarter decisions and take immediate action. N3N’s device and vendor independent platform is agnostic to data source, location, format or protocol so you can connect data from anywhere to achieve unparalleled visibility into cruise ship operations for heightened guest safety.
