The new DIMECC Sea for Value programme (S4V) provides blueprints for digitalisation, service innovation and information flows in maritime transport. Its longer-term mission is in preparing for advanced autonomous operations and navigation.
DIMECC, leader of the ‘One Sea – Autonomous Maritime Ecosystem’, has opened what it says is the first globally available test area for autonomous vessel projects in Finland. The test area will be open to anyone wishing to examine the success of their research into unmanned ship systems in open waters, the company says.
Finland is throwing its weight behind the development of autonomous ships, with the country aiming to provide the world's first unmanned maritime products, services and ecosystem by 2025.
Digital Ship magazine provides the latest information about maritime satellite communications technology, software systems, navigation technology, computer networks, data management and TMSA. It is published ten times a year.
