On ships, a chart plotter combines GPS data with an electronic navigation chart (ENC). Additionally, radar, automated information systems (AIS), and other sensors may be used to show additional information on the chart plotter in addition to the ENC. Chart plotters may also show data from additional sensors, such as echolocators or sonar, depending on the application.
Electronic chart plotters are CPU and GPU heavy programmes by their very nature. It is necessary for chart plotters to retrieve the Navigation Signal (Galileo, GPS, GLONASS, WAAS etc.) and overlay it on a map in order to function. When using specialised hardware, map updates are generally shown at a refresh rate ranging from 5 to 30 Hz. On the other hand, most high-end systems require dedicated hardware. Processing power and video memory requirements might be high, especially if the chart plotter creates three-dimensional representations, as in fishing.
All chart plotters have the same basic navigational display. Their display choices may include three-dimensional fish-finding and bottom features that are beneficial for fishing, depending on the intended usage and the chartplotters exact specifications With issuing a single screen command, these alternate displays can be shown, causing the primary display to be substituted by the one that was requested. There is also the option of split-screen modes on a single screen, as well as multi-display capabilities. It is possible to configure chart plotters to emit audio and visual warnings for circumstances such as a probable collision, deviating considerably from the planned route, etc.
SONAR systems for search-and-rescue operations and anti-submarine warfare systems are likely to drive the worldwide marine chart plotter market to new heights in the years to come. It is also predicted that current boats would be upgraded in the future with technologies such as marine chart plotters, which is likely to boost market development. Chart plotters are a vital piece of equipment for a naval vessel’s safety. For the projected period, chart plotter systems are likely to assist in detecting fish, which in turn is expected to fuel the market growth.
Europe, East Asia, and North America account for a major portion of global commerce. The need for maritime navigation systems is therefore primarily driven by these areas. On the back of recent gains, the outlook for Denmark and Sweden’s maritime navigation systems industry in the future years has improved. Swedish economy is anticipated to develop at a faster rate than that of Denmark and Norway.
It appears that the Chinese Government as well as China’s National Shipbuilding Sector Association are ready to support R&D efforts in order to modernise the industry and develop marine navigations perspectives. Several marine electronics firms have developed sophisticated technologies to suit the growing need for GPS and other navigational aids as a result of the increasing demand. As a result, the marine chart plotter market is likely to be boosted in the future. The industry is also being driven by the rising number of yachts being purchased in tourist nations.
The Global Marine Chart plotter Market can be segmented into following categories for further analysis.
The chart plotter and other gear at the core of boat’s navigation network are continuously being replaced by newer technology, much as mobile phones are. When compared to the simple chart plotter of the past, multifunction displays (MFDs) are unbelievably sophisticated and powerful, capable of crunching radar and sonar information, processing video, and switching and monitoring systems throughout the boat.
The other most interesting integration in the char plotter technology has been screen technology, touchscreen capabilities as well as daylight viewability, so that those instrument displays, which would have previously been 7-segment displays like the HV, will now be in colour. This improved performance comes at a cost in terms of power consumption. With a full backlight on, the 12in device may draw up to 1.8A in streaming mode, or around 1A in regular operation.
Designed for cockpit or mast usage, with a robust Ethernet connection to integrate into your current network, it’s a great addition to any boat. The screen has also been upgraded with in-plane switching (IPS) technology that works through polarising filters. It improves visibility by 25%, and sunlight visibility. A new nano-particle screen coating repels water, oil and smudges better resulting in a touchscreen that is easier for sailors to use accurately, even in wet conditions.
LightHouse 4 is the latest operating system for Raymarine Axiom chartplotters, and it brings new levels of ease of use, personalization, features, and usefulness to the table.
The upgrade includes new menu structures that make it easier to use the depth of Axiom features, as well as customised photos, which are now available to all boaters. Deeper connection with Mercury engines, Sirius XM Fish Mapping, and Navionics charts have all been added to improve a captain’s boat awareness at the helm. Navigation, NMEA2000, and SeaTalk may all be displayed using new dynamic tiles on the homescreen.
LightHouse 4 is a free downloaded update for Axiom, Axiom+, Axiom Pro, and Axiom XL users, as is the case with all Raymarine software upgrades. To make tapping into the power of Axiom faster and easier, the LightHouse 4 OS includes reduced menus. Longer pull-up menus are now layered, making them easier to see and use.
LightHouse apps that control or offer information from marine integration partners such as Seakeeper, Victron, and Lumishore may now be launched straight from the LightHouse home screen, and important LightHouse apps can now be seen in split screen configurations. In addition, the important MOB touch key has been moved to a more visible location on the home screen.
Captains can also use the home screen display to add a favourite photo to the background or create dynamic dashboard tiles to keep track of real-time instruments and navigation data.
Raymarine has announced the launch of its new YachtSense Ecosystem, a monitoring system that allows boaters to handle Raymarine equipment and vessel systems from their mobile device, both on and offboard.
The YachtSense Ecosystem is divided into three layers. The system starts with the new Raymarine mobile app, which allows for easy onboard and off-boat connectivity and serves as the hub for connecting to the YachtSense Ecosystem and Axiom displays. The app interface or a smart speaker like the Echo Dot or Google Home can be used to control this.
Expectations for boating and boating technology are constantly changing, they believe the YachtSense Ecosystem is a fantastic adaptation and enhancement to the client expectation
Boaters can use the Raymarine mobile app to set up and alter their vessel profile, as well as backup and transfer waypoints and other data. Boaters can also monitor instruments and NMEA2000 sensors, receive alarms, and check engine telemetry from their phone or tablet using the Raymarine mobile app.
The Raymarine mobile software can also turn a smartphone or tablet into an Axiom remote station, allowing users to stream and control Chartplotters from anywhere onboard
Chart-plotters, like other nautical systems, are rarely utilised on their own. A comprehensive set of marine equipment is used on commercial ships, allowing them to navigate in any weather situation, even rough seas. Sonar transducers, two-way radio communication devices, and emergency locators are among the additional instruments (EPIRB). The integration of various gadgets is crucial, as looking at many screens may be distracting. In this way, displays may frequently include charting, radar, and sonar in one package.
JRC USA has recently introduced the Plotter JLZ 1000 which has brought upon the integration of the latest technology through better adoption and capability of ease of learning. The Split-screen functionality lets you view multiple kinds of information simultaneously and the integrated update support maintains use of the latest charts TT(ARPA) and AIS operation-assistive display capabilities. It has also been installed with new control additions for simple ease of use displaying up to four kinds of various information including charts, highways, analogue meters, and monitoring displays in split-screen simultaneously. The user’s ship’s tracks and marks can be imported from other JRC devices with ease of controls.
