Our Solutions

Supplying USV Manufacturers Worldwide

Cambridge Pixel has been supporting the rapidly growing USV market with sensor processing technology to assist with navigation, collision avoidance and target recognition. Our products have evolved with advances in USV technology and will continue to be enhanced with new capabilities.

Our expertise and products provide a core set of capabilities for USV developers, including:

Partnerships with Radar Suppliers

Many USVs need inexpensive radar equipment but radars from many leading suppliers are locked into proprietary software.  Cambridge Pixel has partnerships with leading manufacturers like Simrad and Furuno, allowing these radars to be used with custom software.

Obstacle Navigation

A feature of many uncrewed boats is their ability to navigate round obstacles autonomously. While the position of stationary objects such as land and buoys may be known ahead of deployment, the dynamic position of other ships and vehicles must be sensed as the USV moves. Radar is fundamental to detecting potential obstacles at significant ranges. Extracting and tracking targets from radar video is a core competence of Cambridge Pixel.

Mothership Communication

Many USV applications require the ability to send radar video, track data and camera video back from the USV to a "mothership", via a wireless link. The link between the USV and mothership may typically be a low bandwidth microwave or satellite connection, presenting a significant challenge for reliable data sending. Cambridge Pixel has software modules that allow the best use to be made of the available bandwidth.

On the mothership, receipt and display of the data sent from the USV is a fundamental requirement. It may also be necessary to control the local processing on the USV, and possibly also the sensors themselves, remotely. Cambridge Pixel has field-proven software components that can provide each of these capabilities.

“Effective and reliable tracking of objects around our unmanned surface vehicles is critical to their safe operation. It was therefore important that we chose an experienced and established radar tracking company to assist us in implementing such a capability. Cambridge Pixel’s engineers have worked closely with the ASV software team to not only fully integrate their tracking and sensor fusion capability into our ASView control system but also to optimise its performance and to enhance situational awareness in this very demanding environment.”
