The Docking Challenge

Docking a boat can be a stressful experience, even for the most experienced captains. Often wind and tides make the task more difficult, and docking mishaps can become expensive repairs. The Raymarine DockSense™ Control system is designed to augment a captain's boat handling skills using the system’s Virtual Bumper™ zone technology around the vessel. Should an object like a piling or another vessel encounter the Virtual Bumper, DockSense™ Control automatically introduces corrective steering and throttle commands to avoid the object and assist the captain in guiding the vessel to the dock.

The Future of Boat Handling

DockSense™ Control uses global positioning system (GPS) and attitude heading reference system (AHRS) position sensing technology to compensate for the effects of wind and currents, ensuring the vessel enters the dock without drama or costly collisions. 

The Raymarine DockSense™ Control systems include multiple FLIR machine vision cameras, a central processing module, and the DockSense™ Control App running on Raymarine’s Axiom navigation display. The system integrates with modern joystick propulsion systems, providing assisted steering and throttle commands to help captains make a smooth arrival.
