CORAL project – a comprehensive analytical platform for small and medium ports
In the CORAl project, SeaData from Gdynia, BGEO from Barcelona and Water Robotics from Montpellier created a comprehensive analytical platform for small and medium-sized ports.
Created by SeaData, BGEO and Water Robotics, the platform performs environmental monitoring using water and air drones collecting data on water and air pollution. Buoys and YetiBox are used for constant monitoring of the most important parameters. The CORAL project platform has systems for monitoring vessel traffic in a port or marina and for managing wharfs and reservations. A simple interface was used to communicate with the vessels, the quay booking calendar and accurate data about each vessel in the vicinity of the port, including its position in real time. The whole is complemented by databases, including GIS and satellite data.
The CORAL project was implemented in Poland as part of the GALATEA program conducted in Poland by the Baltic Sea and Space Cluster. Co-financing comes from Horizon 2020.
