The Smart Bollard is a bollard that measures the vector load and angle on the bollard generated by the mooring lines. It measures, by using industrial sensors inside the bollard, the loads of the mooring lines on the bollard by sensing and translating structural movement caused by the mooring line tension. The Smart Bollard can be used for all seagoing vessels, such as container and bulk carriers.
With the Smart Bollard, safety can be monitored in real-time. The actual data will be available for the port authority, terminal operator or the vessel itself.
