A smart way to evacuate passenger ships
The sinking of the Titanic in 1912 is probably the most famous maritime disaster. This shipwreck and the many more since then have rendered the safety of large passenger ships a worldwide concern. The process of evacuating a large passenger ship, however, is very complex. In this context, the EU-funded SafePASS project will redefine related evacuation processes, systems and equipment as well as the international regulations for passenger ships. It will develop an integrated system that can monitor, process and inform passengers and crew about the best evacuation routes in the event of an emergency. The aim is to facilitate ship evacuation and increase safety through fail-safe processes and enhanced situational awareness.
