SignalK

The key element on board: signalk.org

SignalK is an open standard for transferring data on a boat. Interfaces for all well-known transmission protocols have since been developed around this idea:

 

  • NMEA2000
  • NMEA0183
  • homebridge
  • AWS IoT
  • VE.Direct
  • EmpirBus
  • MQTT

The SignalK server is therefore perfectly suited for migrating old and new sensors onboard the ship.
But that's not all: A constantly growing number of actuators on board can also be operated.
