Brief: To make the transfer process safe for pilots at sea
Working with the Lloyd's Register Foundation and the RNLI, myself and three others from the Royal College of Art designed a modular ladder to replace the traditional pilots ladder. We also prototyped an app, SPA (Sea Pilots Assistant) which has gained great interest from pilot communities across the word. Watch this space!
Final rendered modular ladder design concept. The modular components consist of teak steps, rope and rubber side protectors which can all be taken apart and replaced easily
SPA App Demo, the app allows Pilots across the globe to connect with each other and share critical information for the sake of the pilots safety. The pilot has to have full trust in a ships ladder and SPA helps to achieve this for all pilots. This app empowers the individual by allowing them to rate their experiences, similar to TripAdvisor System. SPA can also work alongside the new modular ladder design.
