The goal of the European Maritime Simulator Network, or EMSN Connect, is to serve as a platform for nautical training and testing of new maritime applications.
EMSN Connect has been running for more than two years with a focus on serving as a platform for nautical training and testing of new maritime applications in ship control and communication. 10 partners with more than 40 ship bridge simulators are now members of the network. EMSN Connect brings together the virtual ships in a common simulation environment. In this way, complex and realistic traffic situations can be designed and navigated in real time.
The expansion of the European network towards Asia is basedin the success of the EMSN. In the Asia-Pacific Maritime Simulator Network APMSN, further simulators in South Korea are integrated.
Role of the CML in EMSN and APMSN:
In its role as technical coordinator, Fraunhofer CML manages the technical setup of complex simulations.
