Metstrade 2022: Game Changing GUI to be previewed at METS by Smartgyro
Marine gyro stabilization specialist Smartgyro will premiere the latest developments in a new, highly integrated Graphical User Interface (GUI) at Metstrade 2022. The new GUI has been developed as part of a larger project with Smartgyro sister companies Vetus and Maxwell.
Aiming towards a Q2 2023 consumer launch, Smartgyro customers will be the first to benefit from the new interface. Based on a standard machine display, but also compatible with Garmin, Raymarine and Simrad MFDs, the interface promises ever greater integration with the future capability of controlling VETUS, Smartgyro, and Maxwell systems from a single place with just a few taps to switch from one to another. A true innovation connecting all systems together into one central interfacing platform compatible with MFDs.
Sander Gesink, Marketing Director at Smartgyro explains: "METS 2022 offers us the perfect opportunity to share with the marine industry the great strides that our teams have been making with this cross-brand GUI. At METS we have installed a totem where we are integrating the Smartgyro display, and the Garmin OneHelm display. This is part of a larger project to bring the group companies' products together, in a unified interface with a common graphic style. The internal software engineering teams, together with an external agency, developed the concept for the new display and each team adapted the colours and features needed for their product line. Smartgyro's GUI will be first to market, already in preview specification here, and it coincides nicely with Smartgyro's launch, also here at METS, of the SG120 and 150 gyro stabiliser models which take the vessel size capability up to and over 95ft."
Simple and intuitive, the new Smartgyro GUI features a clean design aligned with the very latest ideas in user experience.
Carlo Gazerro, Smartgyro Sales Manager, says: "Users of the SG series units already benefit from superior roll reduction and the unique onboard maintenance and service of our models. Now, it will be possible to view, control and monitor the boat's stabilization status and activities more accurately than ever before."
Exemplifying the concept that successful marine electronics integration is never about putting all the eggs in one basket, Smartgyro also announced in September 2022 that it is the latest in a growing list of marine companies to have been integrated with OneHelm, Garmin's intuitive solution that simplifies control and customization of marine systems to one primary source.
