What is Signal K?

  • Next generation interfacing solution for marine data exchange
  • Intended to be used not only for communication between instruments and sensors on board a single vessel, but also to allow for sharing of data between multiple boats, aids to navigation, marinas and other marine assets
  • Designed to be easily consumable by web and mobile applications and to connect modern boats to the Internet of Things.
  • Open source platform that has been rapidly growing over past few years with a core global programming group of talented boat owning developers
  • Signal K data is transmitted as a JSON string which is native to the internet and internet browsers allowing data to be very easily manipulated and displayed
  • Data can be sent over multiple mediums from wifi to Ethernet, Bluetooth to regular serial connections.

Why Signal K?

  • A need for a more sophisticated method of interfacing for marine electronics in todays ever more connected world – allowing a next generation range of applications for boating
  • A need for open source development to engage the applications development community and allow speedy, easy development of new apps
  • A need not just for on board interfacing of equipment but also connection to the Internet of Things and for interfacing between multiple marine assets – boats, ships, buoys, ports and more
  • A need for integration of web, cloud and mobile devices into the boat’s core navigation system
