Keeping boaties safe on NSW waterways

for Transport for NSW

BRAINS won the tender to develop an innovative app for TfNSW that would keep people safer afloat. It uses GPS to log their trips and provides them with safety advice as well as real-time weather alerts relative to their location. They can also see boat ramps, moorings and warnings (e.g. shallows) relevant to their position. They can drop digital markers to save mooring or fishing spots and save their trips.
