In 2013 we began developing a wireless boat management system, consisting of a central controller and separate modules, that together monitor and manage all manner of systems on a typical boat (or RV/motorhome), all of which is viewed and operated from your web browser on a wifi-enabled phone, tablet or other computing device rather than requiring yet another display to clutter the boat’s dashboard.
Due to the long-term commitment of our founders, SharksHead was able to accumulate a wealth of intellectual property (“IP”) covering this affordable, wireless, and extendable infrastructure.
What does that really mean?
- affordable: we use off the shelve components to keep our prices low
- wireless: this allows the installation of a SharksHead system across a vessel of almost any size. Our IP provides the basis for wireless modules that don’t need to be able to contact the central component (known as the headquarter, or HQ) directly: they can automatically and dynamically forward information from module to module until it it reaches the HQ. This allows a simple installation to any new or existing vessel
- extendable: we’re committed to adding new features to SharksHead based on your feedback. First was a weather station, we then added gas sensors for the safety of the occupants followed by a module that turns on consumers like lights or fans. Soon we will provide means for monitoring and controlling many more aspects of the vessel.
In the spirit of reconciliation Shark’s Head acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
