Case study: Brabo

A real-time platform for pilotage and mooring


Operational efficiency is indispensable in the port sector. For Brabo, Rombit.Studio created one user-friendly platform, integrating existing and new data sources. By visualizing all data in a geographical overview, Rombit.Studio significantly enhanced the situational awareness for pilots, boatmen and dispatchers. It provides an automated decision support system by applying big data analytics and machine learning.

The challenge

Brabo’s ambition was to transform into a future-proof pilot organisation. This required full digitisation of all paperwork; enhancing the situational awareness of all assets and workers; unlocking both historical and real-time data; integrating all siloed processes and systems in one digital platform; and implementing automated decision support.

The Solution

_Step 1: Workflow digitisation: planning &  time registration, order management, incident management, routing

_Step 2: Adding IoT sensors for track & trace solutions, access control and time registration

_Step 3: Integrating & visualising in one user-friendly platform: online dashboard and mobile applications

_Step 4: Machine Learning for automated decision support


“Maritime pilots from around the world are impressed by our revolutionary port visualization platform.”
