Custom made handheld controller for the maritime industry

We developed a small size hand held control unit to replace a traditional marine portable control box.  Traditional control boxes can weigh up to 10 kg, which makes them less portable and user friendly. The tailor-made controller can control a vessel, winch, a ROV or an UAV.
