SeaBot XR is leading the learning journey for effective operations in a digitised supply chain. It puts the human element at the centre of automation in operations and works with companies to identify the skills and competencies seafarers will need to operate tomorrow’s vessels.
SeaBot XR recognises the high value of technology in business and the safety opportunities in remote-operated and autonomous vessels which will inevitably enter the maritime supply chain.
The company ensures that the skills and competencies seafarers need to operate uncrewed vessels are developed in tandem with the technology, so that the machine works for the human, and not the other way around.
SeaBot XR’s end-to-end approach to learning is being incorporated into companies across shipping, renewables, offshore oil and gas, and aviation, to align their businesses to digital operations. Through state-of-the-art tools such as gamified learning, blended learning delivery using extended reality, and a pan industry competency management and assessment platform, SeaBot XR manages individuals’ learning journeys.
The company was founded in 2018 by CEO Gordon Meadow. Gordon’s maritime experience combines with chief operating officer Ifor Bielecki’s aerospace background to create cutting edge services that draw best practice from both industries. SeaBot XR has access to a wide pool of specialist consultants from which it draws relevant expertise, depending on the client and project.
SeaBot XR is driving the skills and competencies agenda at various industry forums. It is an active member of the Institute of Marine Engineering Science and Technology (IMarEST) and Gordon is chair of its Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships Special Interest Group (MASS SIG).
It is also a founder member of MASSPeople, the Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) International Training Standards Working Group, and also participates in the Maritime Autonomous Systems Regulatory Working Group (MASRWG).
