The eMuster module offers a fast and reliable solution to mustering of passengers during both drills and actual emergencies, informs the company specialising in technology systems for the cruise sector.
Electronic rather than paper-based operation means that progress can be monitored in real time, which greatly increases situational awareness and helps crew react rapidly to address any potential danger.
Mobile devices for passenger processing are located at each muster station. Devices will synchronise via the ship's own wireless network, and in case of network failure or blackout, a fall back onto peer-to-peer communication (Bluetooth) will take place completely automatically. Thus, the risk of data loss is minimised thanks to continuous and resilient replication between all mobile devices and the Emergency Control Centre.
With colour-coded graphics and large, full-colour passenger photographs, the Resco eMuster user interface ensures that data capture is easy, fast, and accurate. Also, upon arrival at their assigned muster stations, passengers will have their ID cards read using barcode or RFID scanning, reducing the likelihood of manual errors during acquisition.
In addition to the Emergency Control Centre, located on the bridge, there is also a dedicated interface, tailored to suit the needs of the Muster Station leader, on the mobile devices themselves. This interface offers a detailed, comprehensive view of the progress at the selected muster station.
The eMuster solution can be used with, for example, the 7-inch weatherproof Panasonic FZ-M1 tablet which can be used even while wearing heavy gloves.
Rescompany will feature its new Resco SMS eMuster at Booth #1611 during Cruise Shipping Miami running between March 17-19, 2015.
