The SafeNav maritime safety project 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.
