Schiffstechnik | Ship

Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology Source: Hasan Deeb A pre-crash advisor could be a handy tool for today’s shipmasters and part of an autonomous navigation system in the future As at COMPIT 2016, possible fields of application of virtual and augmented reality (VR, AR) in shipbuilding were topics again. A team from the University of Turku tested the different available VR and AR products for potential industrial use and found some of the technology mature enough for that. COMPIT organizer Volker Bertram could not resist to ask whether VR was maybe just a solution that looks for a problem. Conference veteran Denis Morais of SSI, winner of the COMPIT award in 2011, admitted that VR maybe does not ten times improve traditional solutions but said: »VR will be more successful in shipbuilding than »We already hire the smartest people, so we need advanced systems to make them even smarter« Scott Patterson, Babcock in the consumer space. It is not an extension of what we do but it certainly offers some benefits in areas like training, design review or laser scanning.« He estimated that the consumer market is still five to ten years away from a satisfying VR experience. Young as well as experienced speakers had to deal with an expert audience with expert questions Photo: Felix Selzer Christian Cabos of classification society DNV GL showed how technologies such as drones, self-localizing cameras and visual mapping could allow remote structural condition assessment in the future. As an example he named work intensive tank entries of surveyors that could be made unnecessary some day, but Cabos added: »This is just a possible application of all the technologies we are looking into at the moment.« First, all the VR amd 3D imaging research projects would produce useful spin-off products along the way. Stephan Procee of Maritiem Instituut Willem Barentsz together with colleagues of TU Delft saw VR and AR as an opportunity for navigators that are confronted with increased complexity of today’s integrated bridges. A visual overlay could point out important signals that the shipmaster should attend and enhance the vague information that some technologies such as radar provide. Time will tell which technology will be used in the end to make the work of shipbuilders and surveyors more effcient and safer. Shipbuilding company Ulstein sees a clear need for a modern, systemic and methodological approach to prepare for the digital future. André Keane gave an overview of the company’s strategy of using Big Data analytics. Ulstein already experiences higher productivity in design and higher performance of design solutions. »Develop fast to succeed or to fail fast and learn,« Keane put it.
