In the shipping industry, they want to minimize risk by using onboard sensors that can alert the crew and onshore partners to potential problems before they occur. Also, operators want training that costs less; and virtual reality saves money while providing skill levels, creating a new training business for the equipment maker. Finally, it’s essential to minimize downtime, and augmented reality can guide the crew by giving on-site help with access to remote support, which is an opportunity for the equipment supplier.
Creating a digital twin of a ship or a virtual representation of its onboard systems may not be the entire vessel—but it’s a great starting point. A digital ship uses various innovative technologies available today in operation and management companies.
