The Spree-Oder Waterway (SOW) is to become a digital testing ground for autonomous and automated inland navigation. From July, a project Autonom-SOW with partners from industry, federal government and science, said the Federal Association of Public Inland Ports (BÖB) on Friday. After initial investigations, construction is to begin in 2020. The test field at the SOW is one of four projects under the action plan “Digitalisation and Artificial Intelligence in Mobility” of the Federal Ministry of Transport.

The technology group Wärtsilä has successfully completed the installation and operational staff training for its Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) solution in the ports of Lisbon and Setúbal / Sesimbra in Portugal. The systems will increase the efficiency of these ports by reducing waiting time for vessels and allowing just-in-time pilotage. The state-of-the-art solution has been developed and supplied by Transas, a Wärtsilä company. The project was booked in July 2018 and completed in January 2019.

Very few people will recognise these devices and technology today.
Beginning in 1836, the American artist Samuel F. B. Morse, the American physicist Joseph Henry, and Alfred Vail developed an electrical telegraph system. This system sent pulses of electric current along wires which controlled an electromagnet that was located at the receiving end of the telegraph system.

Although commercial fishing boats are usually durable enough to last decades – or even generations, in some cases – it isn’t just good construction that allows them to spend after year in rough waters without falling apart. Continue reading Fishermen’s News Boat Prep→
The rapid advancement of technology has significantly improved the methods of monitoring and tracking the ships in the recent past. The fast-developing satellite services have enabled the ship tracking across the globe easier now and thus ensuring the safety of vessels from various threats.
With the help of satellite-based vessel monitoring systems (VMS), different types of vessels have been monitoring efficiently by marine agencies and vessel owners for a long period. The automatic identification system (AIS) helps track bigger vessels crossing waters across the world by offering real-time information about the vessels.
