Sensors provide solutions in navigation, cargo and supply chain safety

Shipping industry is increasingly using sensor technology to conduct performance monitoring and maintenance operations. This technology can be proven very useful, as the data generated by such devices could provide better solutions to mitigate risk. Sensors can also be combined with other developments, like blockchain.

Drones can contribute to safer and more efficient shipping

The use of drones in the shipping industry is about to take-off. They are used more and more by class societies and marine surveyors and they can provide faster and more informed decision-making on board, reducing the impact of any incident. What is most important however, is the fact that drones can help protect lives.

Technology advancements enable data collection in the Arctic

The remote location of polar oceans, their vastness and dangerous environment raise significant challenges when gathering data and conducting science. However, advances in technology are providing new opportunities for data collection that go beyond what was possible even 20 years ago.
