Finland Installs Smart Beacons to Make Fairway Safer

The fairway maintained by the Finnish Transport Agency and the Port of Rauma installed 33 smart beacons to increase visibility and transport safety. The beacons designed and installed by Meritaito Ltd. can be adjusted by pilots to increase light output as needed or by maritime agencies to dim the lights when the fairway is not in use. The output of the light can be adjusted using methods as simple as a smartphone application. Read more from Meritaito on the installation.

The beacon installation is part of the Finnish Transport Agency’s three-year digitization project focused on increased situational awareness in all modes of transport. You can see a visual presentation of the agency’s plan on the project website.
