Russian participants include the leading maritime organizations taking part in the MARINET Center: Rosmorrechflot, Sovcomflot, United Shipbuilding Corporation, Kronstadt Technologies, NPM AME, Morinformsystem-Agat Concern, Krylov State Research Center, Nonius Engineering, etc.
The Marinet Conference programme:
Panel Battle #1: Digital navigation vs e-Navigation. 10:30-11:30, Osaka Hall
Is e-Navigation concept already outdated, even before its implementation? Should we talk about full-scale digital transformation of the maritime shipping and logistics as the real business demand driving the industry changes? Discover how “maritime Ubers” can crash traditional freight business, how Big Data will change the operations, and is there the real benefit behind technologies hype.
Panel Battle #2: Why do not unmanned ships sail? 11:30-12:30, Osaka Hall
The remote and autonomous shipping enthusiasts promise huge cost reduction and safety improvement, the first remote shipping trials are ongoing, IMO has started to consider relevant regulation – but do we really require and ready for the unmanned sipping? Look at the real unmanned technologies implemented on the sea and discuss together with experts their potential benefits and barriers.
Maritime Robotics Fest. 13:00-14:30, Osaka Hall
After the break the conference continues with short speeches about projects in maritime robotics. Get to know the newest implementations in the commercial area and the military solutions conversion, free discuss with developers details and benefits of these solutions.
