New platform to promote digitalisation in the shipping industry
The digital twin concept – a virtual representation of a physical asset that can be used as a model for various purposes – is making waves in a range of industries. The shipping sector is no exception. The EU-funded VesselAI project plans to develop a framework that facilitates the modelling and prediction of ships’ behaviour. Using digital twin technology, the framework will efficiently fuse and assimilate huge amounts of data, enabling highly accurate modelling as well as design and operation optimisation of ships and fleets under various dynamic conditions. VesselAI will also tap into the potential of artificial intelligence, cloud computing and high-performance computing, encouraging deeper digitalisation in the shipping industry.
