inDTSmobile is now available for download from the App Store®. This opens up completely new possibilities for traffic guidance and management, and communication between traffic centers, pilots or other mobile forces.
“The app offers many functionalities like our proven VTS display inDTS, so that the operation is intuitive “, explains Heiner Lamprecht, head of the JAVA development department at in-innovative navigation GmbH. “Because inDTSmobile is available on a smartphone or tablet, it can easily be used on the road by employees of port authorities, traffic control centers or the water police. Even live video from cameras integrated into the VTS system can be easily accessed just via smartphone.”.
inDTSmobile shows the current ship positions along a river section or in coastal waters live on a nautical chart. All available information on other ships is also shown in a tabular list. The new app can be used by pilots, for example, to display planned voyages for navigation on difficult stretches of water. A 3-D view provides a realistic representation of the planned route. Additional maps, radar, tide and weather data can be displayed as layers. When the application is connected to the control center and the central data base, it is possible to modify data with respect to the current traffic situation, therefore, missions can be coordinated more effectively.
To use inDTSmobile it is necessary to be connected to the backend of a VTS system provided by in-innovative navigation GmbH.
