Based on many years of knowledge, experience and development as well as a large number of delivered sensors for attitude determination worldwide, KONGSBERG now offers a software tool to analyze
motion and weather data.
The Vessel Motion Monitor (VMM) system interfaces a range of sensors for accurate monitoring of any point on a vessel. Sensors typically interfaced are Motion Reference Units (MRU), meteorological
and navigation sensors. Extensive recording functionality is also included.
Motion limit monitoring
The VMM 200 enables the user to monitor the motion of any user defined point of interest on the ship. The system will give alarms and warnings when the motion level exceeds user-defined limits.
The VMM 200 performs statistical analysis of the time series and presents the result to the user in real time. Based on the sensor input over a given time period, statistical values are calculated
and presented. Typical values are:
- Average values and periods
- Standard deviation
- Root Mean Square (RMS)
- Maximum and minimum values
The Vessel Motion Monitor includes extensive recording functionality. The amount of data variables recorded and the duration of the recording period is only limited by hard-disk capacity. It records
data on a binary format at a selectable data rate (maximum 10 Hz). A tool is available for converting the binary data to ASCII-format for further post-processing of the data in a preferred software package
like Excel, Matlab and similar.
