The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA Singapore) published a video providing information on how e-navigation enables safe, secure, efficient and sustainable shipping in the global maritime community, presenting the “Digital Trader” vessel sailing from Norway to Singapore.
MPA Singapore warned that it will test an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle. The operation will take place north of Small Craft Anchorage ‘A’. The testing will occur from 13 May 2019 to 17 May 2019. A safety boat will also be in attendance at all times to warn and re-direct craft in the vicinity to keep clear of the working area.
The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore is co-organising a workshop with the International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) to support the operationalisation of e-navigation solutions. This is the first workshop since Singapore’s election to the IALA Council in 2018. The MPA-IALA e-navigation workshop will take place from 8 to 10 April.
Fujitsu announced the results of a field trial that was conducted with the help of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. This trial analyzed marine traffic risks in the Singapore Strait, with Fujitsu presenting the usefulness of a new ship collision risk prediction technology. This new technology leverages the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in predicting near misses between vessels.
MPA Singapore informed that it will conduct testing of autonomous and remotely operated underwater vehicles off St. John’s Island. The tests will take place from January 7 until January 18. The tests will last from 9 am to 5 pm daily.
The Maritime Port Authority of Singapore signed a MoU with Keppel Offshore & Marine and the Technology Centre for Offshore and Marine, Singapore, to jointly develop autonomous vessels for a variety of operations, including channeling, berthing, mooring and towing operations.
Fujitsu, Singapore Management University, and A*STAR’s Institute of High Performance Computing, will collaborate to develop new technologies to improve vessel traffic management in the Port of Singapore, with the support of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. These technologies will use AI and big data analytics.
