Marine Sector Gets a Digital Smart Inspection Platform


RINA and VRMedia offer a digital solution for remote and smart inspections for the Marine sector. The service is provided through smart helmets operated by a user-friendly RINACube hosted application.

In the inspection field, new technologies can support human inspectors augmenting their capabilities; smart helmets are therefore employed to support traditional visual inspections.

Kiber Helmet

The Kiber Helmet is a wearable device for onboard engineers that, combined with Kiber Communication software, connects them with inspectors or specialised experts ashore.

Kiber Helmet capabilities

  • Allows engineers and inspectors to see what the person wearing the helmet is seeing in real time
  • Enables high-resolution image capture and real-time mark-up of images
  • Supports easy document share
  • Permits multiple people support sessions, with video recording and playback

Key advantages

  • Reduction of travel time and related costs
  • One single point of collection for photos, video and documents
  • Fewer miscommunications
  • Possibility to involve the right capability also remotely.

Who is benefitted?

  • Classification Societies, to carry out remote inspection activities, when allowed by regulations
  • Shipowners and ship managers, to provide remote assistance from ashore for crew members onboard ships
  • Other entities, to perform ad-hoc remote surveys.

RINACube digital platform hosts the Kiber application software which works also on mobile/tablet devices optimising the bandwidth required.
