Personal distress alarm and tracking during emergency and training.

During emergency situations onboard ships and rigs, gaining POB control is a top priority. Existing solutions and procedures are mainly analogue, based on manual headcounts and paper sheets. This is a time consuming and complicated process often leading to dangerous situations and potential loss of lives. Time used on identifying and locating missing personnel leads to delays in mobilising assistance and providing potentially life-saving treatment.

Connect POB utilises smart ‘low power’ wireless IoT sensor technology providing onboard emergency response teams with an immediate overview and position of all personnel in real time. This information can be shared with different parties – such as fleet management offices, shipowner offices, insurance companies, coastal services and rescue departments – through cloud-based services, enabling enhanced decision support and assistance during emergencies.

Digital Interfaces

Designed to deliver instant situation overview with the user’s goals in mind.

Responsive design suited for desktop, tablet and mobile view provides crisis management with better visual overview of crew’s whereabout onboard the vessel in distress.

Wireless Nodes

The building block for full Onboard Wireless Connectivity.

The vessel interior and exterior sensors are positioned based on the vessel’s General Arrangement to ensure complete coverage.


Personal distress alarm and tracking during emergency and training.

As personnel move around, their tag is identified by the nearest interior sensor, and wirelessly transmitted to the central unit. A connected PC with ConnectPOB software collects the crew location information from the central unit, and presents it on a visual interface.

The value of safety culture

By: Jacob Grieg Eide

“There are as many, and more, upside economic consequences of a great safety culture as negative financial consequences of poor safety practices. It’s quite obvious which side shipping companies should be on, and our mission is to help them,”

says John Roger Nesje, chief executive of Norwegian wireless technology pioneer Scanreach.
