FURUNO ENVISION AR Navigation System is our all-new advanced augmented reality navigation system that provides substantial support to navigation, using the power of AR to go beyond reality.
Thanks to a camera pointed forward of the vessel, an image of the front view projects on a display and all the necessary navigation information is superimposed over this live video imagery by our AR technology. Even in adverse weather or visibility conditions, you can clearly view other vessels’ routes and critical information, as well as own ship data, allowing you stress-free maneuvering and navigation. This very intuitive way to display and share the information between the captain and the bridge team provides enhanced situational awareness, crew confidence, watchman support, and allows for better coordination of crew members.
The FURUNO ENVISION series aims to contribute to the safety and security of the voyage by offering visual support to maneuvering and navigation during any operation, a further technological step towards autonomous navigation.
*AR navigation is an auxiliary tool designed to improve the navigation comfort for safer navigation. In no case should AR navigation replace Radar, ECDIS etc. and other required instruments for danger avoidance.

ar navigation system
TVI （Top View Indicator）
Displays other ships by either Target Tracking (TT) or AIS in 360 degrees with own ship as center.
- If the target is out of the viewing angle of the camera, the out-of-view area in the TVI will flash to alert you.
*This video has been sped up x20.
One-click range switching
In congested sea areas with a large number of vessels, it is possible to reduce the number of targets that are displayed by simply changing the range. This function is also very useful for temporarily checking distant targets.
Intuitive color-coded display for targets *
Based on CPA/TCPA value, TT and AIS targets will be displayed in different colors according to their threat level.
*Colors adjustable (Yellow, Orange and Red are available)
- Selective marker
- Main target information frame
- Appended target information frame
- Target shape
Selection marker and Target information box
Other ship information are collected by either TT or AIS are indicated with specific marks. When a mark is clicked, a box containing the information will open.
By superimposing the graphical virtual shape over AIS targets (virtual buoy, buoy, boat, tanker), it becomes easy to visually grasp the location of dangerous targets and their directions.
- Target shape OFF
- Target shape ON
What the eye cannot see
AR information overlaying the screen is particularly useful in poor visibility conditions.

*By using a surveillance video camera and overlaying AR information on the display, our AR Navigation system allows for quick and intuitive situational awareness.

Stable AR expression
Even when the ship is pitching or rolling, the overlaying AR information remains stable and will not drift away from the real elements of the live imagery, providing reliable data in all circumstances.
