Customer case: Sensor controlled evacuation chute

VIKING, a global provider of marine life-saving equipment, is using a wireless sensor system in its evacuation life raft system.

In case of emergency passengers transfer from a ship to lifeboats via evacuation chutes. But as there is only room in the chute for one person at a time, it has to be cleared before the next person is allowed to go down into the life raft.

Wireless battery powered sensors send a signal to the man at the top of the chute. A red light means it is blocked. When the signal changes to green the chute is clear and ready to transfer another person from the ship into the lifeboat.

The system is designed with a battery lifetime of min. 7 years. Read more about our technology here
