Modern technology on the vessel bridge provides a lot of information that is supposed to help the navigator. But part of the information is unorganized, and there is a lack of standards. This can lead to confusion. There is an overflow of information on the bridge that could lead to accidents.
With e-Navigation a new standard for organizing the information is developed, providing for better means of navigation. One system integrates all the necessary information to give the right information at the right time, filtering out everything that is irrelevant for safe navigation.
e-Navigation is an evolutionary and dynamic concept that will continue to develop as new user needs arise and emerging technological opportunities become available.
What does EfficienSea do within e-Navigation?
Tomorrow's e-Navigation today
Work Package 4 will provide the Baltic Sea countries and the European community with a comprehensive best practice demonstration of the e-Navigation concept in order to facilitate the further development and full scale implementation of the concept.
This encompasses establishing one or more e-Navigation trial zone(s) where service providers can deploy and test trial versions of their products and services, and where they can be assessed by real users.
Such a best practice demonstration will help prepare and mature as many stakeholders as possible for undertaking their roles in the future full scale deployment of e-Navigation.
The EfficienSea e-Navigation partnership
The EfficienSea e-Navigation partnership gathers experienced and important actors in the Baltic Sea region to get a grip on the ever evolving e-Navigation concept.
EfficienSea provides a level playing field where components of the e-Navigation concept can be demonstrated and evaluated prior to full scale implementation.
WP4 e-Navigation is lead by the Danish Maritime Safety Administration, DaMSA, and consists of a partnership of 14 organisations:
- Danish Maritime Safety Administration
- Estonian Maritime Administration
- Swedish Maritime Administration
- National Institute of Technology Poland
- Chalmers University of Technology Sweden
- SSPA Sweden
- Gdynia Maritime University Poland
- Maritime Office Gdynia Poland
