SafeNav will use innovative sensor setups, including cameras to solve the main challenge = to improve the detection performance in difficult conditions
The € 8 million maritime safety project SafeNav promises a path towards safer and more secure navigation for the navigator on the bridge today and then moving towards remote-operated and autonomous shipping. One key aspect to boost maritime safety is accurate and efficient detection and tracking of vessels and floating objects as well as marine mammals, in order to avoid navigational hazards such as collisions and subsequent damages to ships, crew members and the marine environment.
In SafeNav, IPI will use innovative sensor setups, including cameras to solve the main challenge = to improve the detection performance in difficult conditions: distant or semi-submerged marine animals or containers, waves crests and sun glitters, poor weather conditions.
Project partners are: Offshore Monitoring Ltd (coordinator), NAVAL GROUP, SIREHNA, Danaos Shipping Co. Ltd, Ladar Ltd, Global Maritime Services Ltd, GREENOV-ITES, SAYFR , Sveučilište u Rijeci / University of Rijeka, Università degli Studi di Genova, imec.
The project will run from 9/2022 to 8/2025 and is co-funded by the European Commission and UK Research and Innovation.
