Written by: Tristan Dargay

TAD design and manufacture VirCru – a smart boat monitoring system. The system is built around a GPRS enabled ‘hub’ that connects to wireless sensors around a boat.

The VirCru app is a smart phone dashboard providing an overview of a boat’s position, power, water levels, temperature and the presence of tenders and outboards. VirCru’s onboard hub and wireless sensors communicate with the app to deliver real time updates on:

  • GPS position + boat angle
  • Battery + shore power connection and voltage
  • Isolator switch status
  • Bilge pump levels
  • Motion detector
  • Cabin temperature, smoke and carbon monoxide presence
  • Outside temperature
  • Engine Hours
