Making ship systems smarter with simulation

As researchers deepen their understanding of autonomous and remote vessel operations, a new breed of smart ship systems combining simulation capability and artificial intelligence is emerging. One of the biggest debates around the future of shipping is what role, if any, unmanned vessels will play. The journey may turn out to be more important than...

Training tomorrow’s seafarers the smart way

The next generation of marine simulation solutions must address shipping’s accelerating pace of technological change and a widening skills gap among seafarers. If a ship’s crew from the 1970s were teleported ten years into their future, the ships of the 1980s would hold few surprises. The same could not be said over the last two...

Korean students train for real-life onboard situations with Kongsberg simulators

Instructors and students from the Korea Maritime and Ocean University (KMOU) and Mokpo National Maritime University (MMU) are set to use Kongsberg Digital simulator systems to train in different situations they may face onboard. The T/S Segero and T/S Hannara, two identical training ships with a length of 133m and a beam of 19m, feature Kongsberg’s K-Sim Navigation,...
