Remote Control Navigation from Rosetti Superyachts

The system reportedly lets users on land maneuver a yacht as if they were at the helm.

Rosetti Superyachts has unveiled a remote control system that, the builder says, lets land-based users maneuver a yacht using the same controls found on the yacht's bridge.

The system is based on a machine-to-machine (sometimes called M2M) connection already installed aboard a Lloyd’s-certified tugboat, according to Rosetti. It’s intended to enhance security while reducing management and insurance costs, allowing operation of navigation, propulsion and engine-room systems.

Two encrypted tunnels are designed to ensure cybersecurity, with a direct connection between the yacht and the remote system. No third-party servers are used. Video and night-vision cameras are installed to help avoid collisions.

Where did this idea originate? Aboard a tugboat called the Giano Tug that was displayed at a convention in France this past June.
