As the ships used in the oil industry are not permitted to tie up to the rigs they service, this company’s equipment is crucial in manoeuvring them alongside the platforms and maintaining a stable position. Guidance’s smart sensor technology is also used in offender monitoring and robotic factory vehicles, for clients including Rolls-Royce, the French justice ministry and the global security-services company G4S.
