SAFETY4SEA conducted ‘Share your Smart Shipping Insights’ survey during Q4 2016 and assessed how maritime stakeholders have realized the current and future smart shipping challenges and have established the nature of ECDIS & e-Navigation, Cyber Safety/ Cyber Security, Autonomous Shipping and Future Trends within shipping.
WISTA has said that although smart ships are likely to be carrying cargoes within 10 years, all in the logistics chain need to adapt in order to make good use of the new technology and the huge amount of data that will be available as a result. Shipping will go from a “poor beginning” in terms of generating and using data to be at the forefront of new technology.
