Monitoring devices at ports in the United Kingdom gather data on tide height, temperature, wind speed, wind direction, barometric pressure, and other metrics. Ferry and port operators carefully monitor these feeds to ensure the safety of their staff, passengers, and vessels.
The client required a solution which collects weather data from specific ports for display on their public website in interactive, graphical gauges and charts over a 24-hour period, allowing maritime enthusiasts to view live weather data and video feeds of ferries arriving and leaving harbours.
The security and integrity of the monitoring equipment at each harbour was a primary concern, which we tackled from multiple angles, including limits on timeouts, retries and the number of connections to each device.
The final solution was developed 100% in-house, and is one we are particularly proud of, including the brand-integrated, custom user interface, robust and lightweight solution architecture, tight security, and feature-rich administrative dashboard. The solution was delivered on time and within the proposed budget.
