The Prepare Ships Project has been finalized

The Prepare Ships project closed on May 30, 2022 and this web site will from now on not be updated. Read the final summary including Final Test Campaing, Final Conference and watch the final project movie. If any questions, you can get in contact with the project partners here.

Prepare Ships is creating a smart positioning solution by developing and demonstrating a data fusion of different sensor and signal sources to enable a robust navigation application. The idea is that vessels with accurate positioning based on EGNSS, data and machine-learning should be able to predict future positions of nearby vessels. Besides a decreased risk for collisions, this also means additional benefits in the form of a more energy effective manoeuvring of the vessels, something which can also reduce the environmental impact of shipping in line with IMO’s targets.
