A Human-centered User Experience

The AX Bridge User interface

AX UI is designed with human centered principles to support the operator throughout the voyage. With balanced composition, clear visuals and prioritized information the design helps lower cognitive overload, enabling safe and efficient operation. 

The AX UI and AX levers complement one another creating a seamless user experience.
