Ship Handling and Simulation

EMSN Connect

European Maritime Simulator Network - Cadets, Officers and Navigators now Experience Cooperative Training - this is the idea of EMSN Connect. Today, more than 10 maritime simulation centers with over 30 bridges are involved in the network. They use the platform for joint testing of new solutions for maritime communication and navigation as well as for training nautical personnel. For this purpose, complex virtual environments are created that provide realistic manoeuvring conditions. Read more in our flyer!

Maritime Biomimetics

Are you curious how your company can benefit from the diversity of natural solutions? The Biomimetic Blue Solutions Team of the Fraunhofer CML can uncover biomimetic solutions for you and support in your bio-inspired developments.

Customized Maritime Big Data Analysis

With the introduction of the requirement of merchant ships being equipped with transmitters of the Automatic Identifcation System (AIS), efficiency and safety of the maritime transport could be increased by the automated exchange of position, speed, course and other data from ship to ship, or ship to base station. In addition to forecasting ship movements, Fraunhofer CML develops intelligent algorithms for many other applications.

Solutions for ship controlling: Autonomous Navigation and Shore Controlling System

Fraunhofer CML invents new systems for safe shipping across the oceans. Find out more about informative innovations such as the collision avoidance controller, harsh weather controller and more in this flyer.

Innovative Nautical Solutions: A Modular Testbed Framework

The future of shipping is distinguished by e-navigation, Shipping 4.0 and modern technology. Ship simulators, central data communication and modular testbed structures are needed to ensure autonomous navigation.

Customized Voyage Optimization

Voyage Optimization guarantees low-emission-travelling and cost efficiency. The potential of saving fuel goes far beyond slow steaming or taking a detour, such as e.g. optimized requirements, an adapted framework and functionality tests. Read here more about optimized weather routing.

Simulation-Based Navigational Safety Assessment

Using real-time simulation methods, the risk of ship collisions or groundings can be minimized. Especially, the methods can be used in ports to save their infra- and superstructure from unsafe navigation by guiding pilots and tugs. The system and its methods are introduced in this flyer.
