BEST (Benetti's Exclusive Sea Technology) is the new exclusive technological platform created by Benetti that integrates all the on board electrical systems. In BEST all subsystems, although different for functionality and technology can communicate with each other using a common language: television really "talks" to lights as well as cameras "talk" to phones. This is possible because every function has an open interface that enables communication with the rest of the system. BEST is made up of a single network infrastructure and middle ware software that correlate all devices and different components through the exchange of signals and events.
The Integrated Bridge Systems designed by Benetti represents a technological innovation capable of integrating and interfacing all navigation instruments thanks to a single software complete with hardware. The Benetti challenge was to design a system which could optimize functional integration of all navigation telecommunications, safety and data transmission instrumentation in order to guarantee extreme ease of use and fast response time, resulting in a considerable increase in sea safety levels. The project, with its innovative modular structure design, is constantly under development in order to allow for the integration of navigation and communication system from the world leading industry brands.
