Improving maritime situational awareness with augmented reality solutions


published on 1 February 2022 103 -

The transport of goods by sea has always promoted and driven trade to a particular extent. In today‘s world, the amount of goods per unit of vessel has increased rapidly while crew numbers have been minimized. The reduction in safe manning levels is supported by the optimization of sensory information, a development that will continue as the digitalization of shipping continues.

In the past, regulatory changes in the maritime industry have often been the result of devastating disasters on or around a ship. However, such necessary changes often emerge years in advance; experts provide feedback based on their ship- and shore-based expertise and experience.

The sensory input on board ships and the possibility to use this information for safe and efficient navigation is given by technically modern systems. A major weakness here is the presentation of the different information to the user on the ship‘s bridge and the user-specific interaction with the systems. In order to present the large amount of helpful additional information to the user in an efficient way, future systems must be more innovative, above all more tailored to the user and more intensively networked. And they must be designed according to the valid standards. 

Due to the already existing and in the future still increasing amount of sensory data, new forms of processing and user-specific presentation of the information are necessary. It is also important to ensure the reliability of the innovative systems, including secure data exchange and data security. More safety, environmental compatibility and economic efficiency can thus be achieved.

Article Ships are manoeuvred in remote mode in Klaipeda Port

by Marine-Pilots.com - published on 28 April 2020

Klaipeda is one among few seaports in Europe, where maritime pilots are able to carry out operations in remote mode. As it is attempted to avoid contact with other persons as much as possible during the quarantine, several trials have already been performed in the seaport. They revealed that such assistance for the vessels sailing in Klaipeda Port is effective and safe.

Article British Ports Association Eyeing up Autonomous shipping possibilities

published on 26 August 2020

The British Ports Association has launched a new initiative looking at the implications of autonomous shipping for UK ports, including a call for evidence from interested parties. Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) involves the automation of vessel and onboard processes which could alter how ports and ships interface with each other. The BPA which represents the majority of UK port activity including 85% of the shipping movements in and out of the country, is keen to explore what the future developments of shipping will mean for the sector.

Opinion If you facilitate 90% of the world's trade, would you influence change?

by Melvin Mathews - published on 1 December 2020

Without a shadow of doubt, shipping is a key enabler of our current way of life and the globalized world we live in today. The irony is that the average person is unaware of the significance or contribution of the shipping industry and how much we rely on ships working without disruption
