1. Artificial Intelligence
With so many parameters and deciding factors, it is cost-effective to have technology such as digital optimization take over and decide the best container bay arrangement.
2. Big Data Analysis
Data analysis relies on mining, collecting, and inferring from large amounts of information collected from large operational environments such as ships and ports.
3. IoT on Vessels
This technology holds immense applications in the field of shipping since this provides remote control to the vessel operator or passengers.
4. Digital Route Management of Ships
Real-time route management can play a major role in improving the journey duration and efficiency.
5. Smart Manoeuvring Control
AI and machine learning in the manoeuvring systems would enable vessels to stay accurately on course without requiring constant input from the captain.
6. Smart Propulsion Systems
As demands on ship propulsion systems grew and larger outputs were required, smart technology was also developed to provide a greater degree of control to the captain of the ship.
7. Integrated Control Systems
Integrated control systems provide a unique solution to monitoring the various systems and components that make up massive vessels.
8. Smart Defence Technology
Implementing smart technology in defense would allow navies to become self-reliant and extremely efficient.
9. Blockchain technology
It is supposed to the next giant step in the aspects of payments by providing a quick, secure and transparent way of collecting payments from any place in the world.
Robots are already being used for maintenance, security and inspections of vessels.
11. Augmented Reality
AR is presently being used mainly for seafarers training. It is helping students to learn from several real-life experiences which would have been otherwise not possible.
