Game-Changing Technologies Transforming the Maritime Industry

AI is making things easier by integrating new shipping logistics and communication technology to develop the shipping industry's business model.

Fremont, CA: Every day, a new technology emerges, unwinding new opportunities to make the world smarter and better. Like all other industries, the maritime industry is witnessing a spectacular shift with the advancement of technologies. There are plenty of technologies that can contribute to the transformation in this industry. But, the game changers would be the one to make operations safer and more efficient.

Let us look at the important technologies that can transform the maritime industry:

Artificial Intelligence

Though AI is at the initial stage of application in the maritime sector, it is already transforming the shipping industry at a global level. AI is making things easier by integrating new shipping logistics and communication technology to develop the shipping industry's business model. New algorithms empower the shipping industry to mitigate security risks and reduce the cost of operations to a great extent.

ROVs

What seemed impossible a few years ago is now real with the help of underwater ROVs. For instance, in the shipping and maritime industry, Deep Trekker ROVs are adopted for maintenance and inspection in areas underwater that are generally not safe for humans.

Port security threats remain high across the globe. Experts have discovered a clear connection between crime and port security. Certain crimes and actions put the maritime industry in jeopardy. ROVs are an enabling technology appropriate for use by federal, state, local, and private organizations that have inherited new requirements designed to improve the security and safety of ports, ships, and harbors.

Autonomous Ships

The use of autonomous ships is another breakthrough for the maritime industry. The uncrewed vehicles sailing through the sea are soon going to be a real scenario. The major advantage of the sailor-less system would be the reduction in human-errors that would further bolster the safety in the sea. These systems are also expected to change the way current cargo ships interact and explore.
