Using a network of sensors that will be built into new vessels, ship owners will be able to capture a range of ship voyage information including location, weather and ocean current data, as well as on-board equipment and cargo status data. By applying real-time analytics to new and historical fleet data and using data visualization technology to present the insights, ship owners will be able to monitor their vessel’s status and condition in real-time to make data-driven decisions that support more efficient operations, the companies say. Services are expected to include real-time alerts and warnings, predictive maintenance and more efficient scheduling.
The connected smart ship uses Hyundai Heavy Industries’ on-ship platform and the Accenture Connected Platforms as a Service (CPaaS). Services to be offered to Hyundai Heavy Industries’ customers through this collaboration include administrative and user management services, and device management services. These help ensure all connected devices can be monitored and maintained remotely.
With real-time data collection and exchange across vessels, ports, cargo and land logistics, Hyundai Heavy Industries says it would be able to create additional services and revenue streams to customers across the lifecycle of ships and journeys, removing barriers between different elements of a ship’s operation.
In other smart technology advancements, last month FleetMind Solutions partnered with Street Smart Vision by McNeilus to offer a smart truck system for refuse collection trucks.
