Single i östergötland
Research collaboration in Östergötland to increase shipping efficiency 16 December Print Linköping University and the Swedish Maritime Administration have established research collaboration to develop more sustainable, efficient and safe shipping operations based on such technology as artificial intelligence and interactive visualisation.
The aims for the traffic centres run by the Swedish Maritime Administration are to improve safety and efficiency for vessels at sea, and to protect the environment.
Freight within Sweden, however, seldom uses maritime transport, even though ships are the most energy-efficient method relative to volume, and most Swedish single i östergötland are on the coast.
Anders Johannesson, senior adviser at the Swedish Maritime Administration, believes that the development of the service centres is an important step towards making Swedish shipping operations safer and more competitive.
The collaboration will initially encompass four research projects in which artificial intelligence and other technologies will be used to follow vessels automatically and warn the traffic centres when deviations occur.
Three of the single i östergötland are led by researchers at Linköping University, in particular at the Department of Computer and Information Science and the Department of Science and Technology. The research will focus on several fields — such as machine learning, logistics, optimisation and cybersecurity.
An example is how to manage huge amounts of traffic information, and how to use it efficiently. This is why we are working with how information can be efficiently visualised, while at the same time automatically analysed.
Accidents at sea and across large areas can in this way be prevented. Sensitive Automation F-AUTO : Systems use artificial intelligence to analyse traffic in real time and warn the operator of potential conflicts that the operator has not dealt with VASA: The project is to digitalise and make more efficient the process of approach to Swedish ports, using interactive visualisation and artificial intelligence.
This is a collective term for maritime traffic information and services to vessels in busy or environmentally sensitive areas.
The aims are to improve safety and efficiency for vessels at sea, and to protect the environment. Translated by George Farrants.
