CyberSea (Marine Cybernetics)
High-performance techniques for curve plotting of large datasets
Marine Cybernetics (now a DNV GL company) used an open source plotting tool to produce trend plots in their CyberSea technology platform. CyberSea is a versatile technology platform that allows Marine Cybernetics to efficiently create Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) simulators, interfacing solutions and HIL test package documentation.
The open source plotting tool imposed performance limitations and proved inefficient when working interactively with large datasets. In 2014, Marine Cybernetics contracted Ceetron Solutions to propose high-performance techniques to enable efficient interactive work on large datasets. Project deliverable was a prototype with functionality for plotting and graphics optimization.
Benchmarking based on Marine Cybernetics datasets proved very promising with regard to algorithm performance and ease of integration. The prototype was delivered as a JAVA application under an Open Source license. Later, the algorithm and code has been integrated into the CyberSea technology platform.
Driven by its purpose of safeguarding life, property and the environment, DNV GL enables organizations to enhance the safety and sustainability of their business through delivery of services and software. They conduct their business in the maritime, the oil & gas, and the energy industries. They operate from more than 400 offices in more than 100 countries, and have around 16,000 employees. Annual revenues are around NOK 22b (2014).
