Your safety is our passion
We illuminate the "last mile" around the vessel using Lidars and our software.
At LuxC, we merge the analogue real world with the digital reality.
Who are we?
LuxC is a DeepTech company dedicated to Lidar technology. We are developing a device for Collision Avoidance and near-shore Navigation of marine vessels by 3D modelling the surrounding of the vessel in realtime. Our focus is on the "lastmile“ (1m to 1km) around the vessel. We aim to help both Humans and Computers (AI) to manoeuvre and navigate safer close to shore.
What is our business?
We qualify commercially available Lidars and package them with other sensors for Marine grade applications that require IPv8 level reliability. Our proprietary software is especially developed for real-time modelling using Artificial Intelligence algorithms. We use onboard sensor data to enhance accuracy of the collision modelling.
We save lives, we save money and we improve fuel economy
What drives us?
Your safety is our passion and we believe that the future can be safer when intelligent machines support human decisions
We combine the data from several sensors to build a 360 degrees Situational Awareness. Our qualified sensor types include:
Lidars: A Laser based 3D scanner technology that has a great range/resolution ratio and incredible all-weather performance
Cameras: We use a wide range of cameras, including high-resolution CMOS-, InfraRed- and Thermal- cameras.
GPS: All our data is Geo-tagged using GPS information
IMU: We use gyroscopes to actively compensate for any motion of the ship
Our software interface between the sensor that measures the analogue world and translates it into a merged digital reality is called libLuxC. It is optimized for real-time analysis of the data recieved from the different sensors.
We build the 360 degrees situational awareness by collecting, calibrating, scaling and merging the signals form many sensors into a single framework.
We develop new Digital solutions for centuries old challenges that have been neglected by the digital revolution. Our aim is to make shipping close to shore safer, more efficient and ready for tomorrow.
We maintain a technical lead through deep going collaborations with key knowledge institutes.
What is in our digital tool box?
We use a combination of classic and new Artificial Intelligence algorithms to process the huge amount of data collected by our sensors. All our sensors have been qualified for usage in Marine environment. Our systems are flexible when it comes to the type of sensors and our customers get the most value for their money.
How do our customers get?
Many classical challenges in shipping, such as collision avoidance, berthing or navigating in a river or a narrow canal, can be solved more efficiently using digital technologies. Our device and software enable our customers to maximize their efficieny and improve their safety.
Our solutions are insensitive to weather conditions, time of day or splash from the sea. Our cloud-based map-infrastructure allows our customers to learn from each other, especially in uncharted waters.
