Samsung Heavy Demonstrates Autonomous Navigation Technology On 15000 TEU Container Ship

– Successful voyage from Geoje to Taiwan with a 15,000 TEU container ship

Identification of 9,000 obstacles, matching more than 90% with navigator-determined routes

– Following Jeju Island and Dokdo, the meaning of demonstrating the global sea area… show off advanced technology

□ Samsung Heavy Industries announced on the 6th that it was the first in the industry to successfully verify ship autonomous navigation technology in the section connecting Korea to the South China Sea.

Samsung Heavy Industries installed its own remote autonomous navigation system (SAS) and smart ship system (SVESSEL) on a 15,000 TEU class large container ship built at the Geoje shipyard from June 26 to July 1 and departed from Geoje and passed Jeju Island to Taiwan. Demonstration of autonomous navigation technology by operating about 1,500km to Kaohsiung Port.

□ This demonstration test was conducted by integrating advanced autonomous navigation technologies such as AIS, radar, camera sensors, and sensor fusion. It was confirmed that the detour route was safely guided in an encounter situation with

In particular, in the South China Sea, where large ships are frequently operated, it is evaluated that it succeeded in demonstrating autonomous navigation technology that has been upgraded to a higher level through highly difficult tests such as accurately presenting safe avoidance routes when approaching from the front (head-on) or side (crossing) of a ship. In fact, the route adopted by Samsung Heavy Industries’ autonomous navigation system matched more than 90% of the avoidance route determined by experienced navigators.

□ Meanwhile, the container ships put into demonstration are equipped with various latest smart ship solutions such as SVESSEL CBM, an electronic logbook, and a condition-based equipment maintenance system developed by Samsung Heavy Industries. Savings can be expected.

“Samsung Heavy Industries’ advanced autonomous navigation technology has been proven by succeeding in demonstrating on global routes following the demonstration returning to Jeju Island and Dokdo last year,” said Kim Hyeon-jo, head of the autonomous navigation research center at Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI). · We will lead the smart ship technology.”
