NYK and Dualog begin IoT programme with NTT Group

The NYK Group and its Norwegian maritime IT partner Dualog have entered into a collaboration agreement with the NTT Group (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation), to work together on a proof-of-concept project to create a new shipboard Internet of Things (IoT) platform.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The project will focus on validation of these technologies when applied in the maritime environment, for processes such as gathering data from onboard sensors and monitoring equipment, remote distribution and management of onboard applications, and monitoring of equipment, event analyses and intelligent alerts.

The NYK Group says it aims to use the knowledge it has already gained through the development of its own ship information management system (SIMS) in the development of this onboard IoT platform, and intends to share the outcomes of the project via an open platform with the maritime industry as a whole, in conjunction with Class NK, DNV-GL, and ship machinery and equipment makers.

NTT’s role in the project, as the non-maritime partner, will be in the application of edge-computing technology to the IoT platform to enable the management of applications using edge servers on board, for high-speed data exchange between different machines and for real-time distributed processing.

Dualog will apply its maritime technology expertise to the creation of a digital data transportation platform for the project, to manage internet, e-mail, and Cloud services on the ship, regardless of the satellite communications provider.

“The customer is the boss. That is the philosophy in Dualog when we create new solutions,” said Morten Lind-Olsen, CEO, Dualog.

“NYK have now pointed out the direction for how to improve ship ownership and management. Much more information needs to be available on shore in real time. Our joint task is to create new innovative solutions to bring ship and shore closer.”{/mprestriction}
