Next generation maritime workplaces

"Open Bridge" is an open source platform enabling the development of cost effective, safe and efficient maritime workplace.

Kjetil Nordby is a Professor in Interaction Design at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) and he is one of the heads of OpenBridge.
He says: "Over 300 maritime companies has registered to access OpenBridge since we launched 6 months ago. We would like to thank you all for tremendous support and enthusiasm. As always, we appreciate any feedback and contributions that may help us improve the open source design system."

Current bridges on ships are often made up of a large number of systems delivered by multiple suppliers. This has led to cluttered workplaces resulting in human error, inefficient operation and an increased need for training. The lack of standardized integration frameworks also lead to high development costs and low innovation speed, since suppliers must develop and maintain many system variations aimed at individual suppliers or ship vendors.

OpenBridge will solve these problems by creating a maritime design system adapted to maritime use situations, modern design principles, new implementation strategies and regulations. Since current challenges in maritime workplaces span both design and technical implementation, OpenBridge will support both user interface design and technology integration.

OpenBridge is developed to support all maritime workplaces on ships and also land-based workplaces for maritime operations.

Thanks for the kinds words. We are collaborating with the Norwegian Coastal Administration in the project for feedback. We try to involve as much users as we can so that we gradually make the system better. I will also encourage everybody to post comments and requests in the feedback forms on guideline web page. Since we are creating a free and open system, we are dependent on contributions from an engaged community.

Great initiative, let's get this in the hands of maritime pilots so that expert feedback can be collected.

Video Presenting OpenBridge Design System at DSD2020 in Oslo

I recently presented the OpenBridge design system at the Design System Day 2020 in Oslo. I talked about what OpenBridge is, how it differs from other design systems and where we are heading.
The conference was moved online due to the Corona virus, so I had to record the presentation using my mobile phone, and get Jon Olav from the lab to add the slides. So - apologize for the home quality of the presentation, but I hope you enjoy learning more about our work!
Since we launched the free...

Opinion How OpenBridge seeks to improve maritime workplaces

by Prof. Kjetil Nordby Institute of Design - The Oslo School of Architecture and Design - published on 6 May 2020

Lack of standard user interfaces across bridge equipment is a major concern for maritime safety. Pilots are in a unique position, as they are constantly exposed to new and differing bridge working environments, equipment, interface designs and combinations of systems. As pilots face this problem throughout every shift they need to put in considerable effort to adjust their work to the many user interfaces they meet.

Video The Maritime Professional during Covid19 - Meet Ivana-Maria Carrioni-Burnett

In this episode we have a chance to meet Ivana-Maria Carrioni-Burnett, a Marine Pilot from the UK who works on the River Thames. Ivana highlights the concerns and fear that can be felt by those working in the maritime industry during COVID19. On the vessel, the seafarers are in their own isolation, or 'families' and then the pilot and other port personnel come onboard and they may be asymptomatic. For the port personnel, they aren't sure if the crew might be infected. Then there are the...
