On September 5, within SMM-2018, the Industry Association MARINET in partnership with PortNews Media Group hosts the conference on the most promising maritime high technologies. Manufacturers and developers of smart systems will openly discuss with shipowners and regulators the hottest industry topics: e-Navigation, unmanned shipping and maritime robotics. Another feature of the conference is participation of several Russian companies lifting the iron curtain over the most actual maritime developments in Russia.
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Is e-Navigation concept already outdated, even before its implementation?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?
