This approval is provided for a Computer Based System complying with the requirements specified in relevant Class Society's rules for a product performing 'Remote Monitoring and Diagnostic', 'Situational Awareness' and 'Decision Support Systems' for on board and onshore usage.
This Internet of Things (IoT) platform aims to enable the on board operation of various systems with different degrees of autonomy.
It is already installed on over 30 ships, while another 60 vessels are at various stages of the set-up process.
The SMARTShip platform aspires to take a comprehensive approach to addressing key maritime issues for every stakeholder in the logistics value chain. The platform collects data from all parts of the ship, to connects disparate systems. This allows for a continuous monitoring and collection of data, assisting crew and managers to reach rules-based decisions.
In addition, SMARTShip’s situational awareness decision support system (DSS) uses applications to prevent incidents, optimize fuel oil consumption, as well as predict maintenance.
