The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and Japanese technology firm Fujitsu have revealed details of trials of a new anti-collision technology.
A two-year trial of the system, called Fujitsu Human Centric AI Zinrai, has recently concluded.
The system uses artificial intelligence to detect ship collision risks and predict hot spots where risks are higher.
Fujitsu claims its risk detection technology is able to give operators about five minutes’ lead time to warn ships of any possible collision. Moreover, Fujitsu claims its dynamic risk hot spot detection technology can detect risks up to 15 minutes in advance.
Further tests in Singapore’s busy waters are likely soon.
