DIGIPILOT is a Smart Autopilot that Optimizes Ship Rudder Movement to Provide Significant Savings in Both Dollars and Time.
20 of The Adaptive Autopilot Systems were Sold Yielding 1-3% Fuel Savings
This Fuel Savings can Translate into 6 to 12% Increase in your Profit.
DIGIPILOT is a “smart autopilot add-on” that optimizes ship’s rudder movement providing fuel efficiency, significant fuel savings in dollars and shortened trip time. The system was originally engineered for ships of 10,000 gross tons and larger in which self-adjusting steering control with very slow controlled turns even then provided substantial annual fuel savings of $25,000. Now savings is ten times more and can be easily retrofitted on existing smaller, high fuel usage ships having standard autopilots- vessels and fleets that can benefit most from fuel efficiency savings.
AutoMATE Marine Systems, LLC was incorporated to resume production of its highly successful DIGIPILOT
AUTOMATE™ products leverage 13 years and $6 million of pioneering development cost from the founders’ previous company on $41M sales of bridge automation systems on 550 ships that experienced 60 million hours of at sea automatic operation.
Patent(s) on improved technology of sensors, algorithms and control solutions are included in the re-hosting of software for today’s faster marine computer/displays, add-on ARPAs and ECDIS.
