Smart Ships Technology 2017


Following on from our successful Smart Ship conference the Royal Institution of Naval Architects is organising a second international conference to further explore some of the key issues and themes raised by the first conference. Developments in both information and communication technologies (ITC) have had a significant effect on many industries within the last decade. However, it is now just starting to impact the shipping industry. ITC will enable some of the most fundamental changes to the way ships are designed and operated. While there are still technical issues to overcome it’s the non-technical hurdles such as economic and legal considerations that will define the rate of this progress.The concept of Smart Ships covers a whole range of possibilities from predictive maintenance, performance optimisation, decision support tools, increased automation and robotics, unmanned remote or autonomous ship operation.

Naval architects and marine engineers have a direct influence over ship design and consequently how their designs are used by seafarers. In recent years, there have been increasing efforts to gain an awareness of human element issues and to improve understanding of how designs influence human behaviour.

Design and Operation of Passenger Ships 2011

The passenger vessel market is emerging from one of the most challenging economic climates and is now showing strong signs of recovery. Vessels are growing not only in size but in complexity as passengers expect a greater level of comfort and greater range of activities on board.
