During the 2019 SAFETY4SEA London Conference, Mr. Dustin Eno, COO, Navigate Response, noted that the shipping industry is more visible now than at any time in history; from AIS vessel tracking, to seafarer social media activity, people can see the industry like never before. Information is now more available to outside watchers than before.
As drone technology has recently seen an increased popularity in maritime surveillance, Ben Burkard, Underwriting Director, and Julian Hines, Loss Prevention Manager at the Standard P&I Club, consider the risks, rewards, as well as the potential regulatory issues surrounding the use of drones in shipping.
Spyros G. Leloudas, Technical Director, SGL Engineering focused his presentation on the ‘’Smart use of 3D laser Scanning and inspections by drones’’ during the 2016 SMART4SEA Forum. He explained that 3D Laser Scanning is a tool for collecting large amount of accurate data within a short time; in essence these scanners collect millions of individual point measurements having each point coordinates and color information.
