Xomnia is a word combining the letter ‘X’ – the unknown – and “Omnia” – Latin for everything. Our team of data scientists and big data engineers are trained to find the undefined – X – in all the relevant data sources – Omnia. This unknown – X – is untapped business value. Combining the X and Omnia you get the Xomnia spirit. Eager, curious and dedicated people, who have the belief that the future is big data.

Self-docking boat? Challenge accepted

Innovation is our middle name. With the self-driving boat back for the summer season we’ve set our sights on the next goal: to have the boat self-dock. We love a good challenge.

Xomnia will work on making the boat self-docking by using LIDAR on top of the rest of the setup. If you’re not sure what LIDAR is, it’s a ranging sensor that helps the boat dock successfully without human intervention.

‘’A LIDAR works by firing high-speed pulses of laser light at a surface. A sensor measures the amount of time it takes for each pulse to bounce back. Because light moves at a constant speed, it can calculate the distance between it and an object with incredibly high accuracy. By using this, eventually Xomnia will be able to create a self-docking boat,” said Wouter van Unen, Data Science Intern.

If you’re interested in working with us on this project please contact Ollie Dapper so we can make it happen.
