A new initiative to create an open source digital platform for the creation of ‘digital twins’ for ships has been launched, with a ceremony at the Norwegian Maritime Competence Centre in Ålesund, Norway.
A group of nine recent Norwegian graduates, working as part of a project with DNV GL, have developed a smart ‘robot container’ concept vehicle, with built-in cooling systems and the ability to sail to ports autonomously without any human interaction.
Rolls-Royce, The Norwegian University of Technology Science (NTNU), research organisation SINTEF Ocean, and classification society DNV GL have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to create an open source digital platform for use in the development of new ships, capable of creating a vessel’s ‘digital twin’.
The Department of Engineering Cybernetics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is leading a new Knowledge-Building Project for Industry that will study collision avoidance for advanced ships.
Rolls-Royce, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the Marintek Research Centre have renewed their long-standing partnership, with the aim of continuing to develop high-tech solutions for the maritime sector, focusing on improving ship performance in rough seas.
Digital Ship magazine provides the latest information about maritime satellite communications technology, software systems, navigation technology, computer networks, data management and TMSA. It is published ten times a year.
