Rough conditions, high seas and heavy waves expose high-speed boats to significant impacts. These impacts might in turn cause severe injuries to the human body and result in material fatigue of the boat itself. In order to decrease long-term damage and create a healthier, more comfortable driving experience for those enjoying a ride on the sea, we have developed MAREC.

MAREC is an accelerometer recorder for measuring impacts on high-speed boats and their staff. The system collects raw data in real time during the boat trip, which afterwards can be easily accessed by a simple USB-stick. The portability and simplicity of the design together with comprehensive data collection make this system a one of a kind on the market.
