OSCAR is the first navigational aid system based on computer vision and artificial intelligence. It enhances vigilance and improves safety both day and night. OSCAR, which stands for Optical System for Cognition And Ranging which is installed on all types of professional craft in the boating and competition domain, the OSCAR system detects floating objects whether or not they are identifiable (OFNI) in a bid to reduce the risk of maritime collision.
OSCAR detects floating objects by day, as well as and above all by night, when the human eye is unable to see obstacles. With its day and night vision, OSCAR therefore augments the crew’s vigilance 24/7 and boosts the safety of a vessel by reducing the risk of it colliding with floating objects.
