A Man overboard is an emergency situation and it is very important to locate and recover the man overboard person as soon as possible due to bad weather or rough sea. The «Man overboard VR-ME» app includes actions mentioned below:
- Falling of crew member overboard. Call from the witness who sees the action
-Emergency call of M.O.B to the crew
-Call to nearby vessels
-Actions of castaway in the water
-Visualization of castaway in water through the beacon in a life vest.
-Approximation maneuver to the castaway.
-Preparing rescue: embankment ladder, net for the escalating crane.
The development of «VR-ME: Man overboard» app is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union under the framework of the Virtual Reality for Maritime Emergencies (VR-ME) project.
