Project: Ship Routing Accounting for Changeable Sea Conditions

Acronym ROUTING (Reference Number: MarTERA-2017_15)
Duration 01/03/2018 - 28/02/2021
Project Topic The aim is to develop a new type of ship routing solution taking into account weather conditions (weather routing) with improved assessment of ship performance and responses to sea conditions. Two decision support systems will be developed by the partners: An assistance tool for ship handling to ensure safe operation based on on-board motion measurements and a routing tool that combines ship motion and weather prediction data to propose optimum shipping routes. The accuracy of the weather data will be improved by online adjustments based on real measurements along the route. All the methods and algorithms will be implemented in commercial Electronic Nautical Chart environment and a full scale validation on an oceanographic vessel in Portugal will be conducted.
