MPA and IBM complete first pilot project trials

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and IBM have jointly completed the pilot trial of three modules under the MPA-IBM SAFER project, which will be rolled out in stages from September 2017.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Project SAFER (Sense-making Analytics For maritime Event Recognition) is a collaboration between MPA and IBM that aims to develop and test new analytics-based technologies, aimed at improving maritime and port operations to support Singapore’s increasing growth in vessel traffic.

Altogether, there are seven modules highlighted for development under Project SAFER aimed at automating and increasing the accuracy of critical tasks that previously relied on human observation, reporting, Very High Frequency (VHF) communication, and data entry.

These seven modules include: Automated Movement Detection; Infringement Analytics; Pilot Boarding Detection; Bunkering Analytics; Prohibited Area Analytics; Vessel Traffic Arrival Prediction; and Utilisation Detection and Prediction.

The pilot trial of the first three of the modules listed have now been completed, with the rest of the modules set to be rolled out by January 2018.{/mprestriction}
