New bridge technology by seafarers for seafarers

During the past fifteen years, bridges on ships have been filled with more and more technical equipment. This includes GPS, electronic sea charts and AIS (automatic identification system). Problems involved are that the new technology is not always adapted to the user, it provides a poor overview and it is difficult to integrate into one standard system. Sea captain and professor Margareta Lützhöft, from the Department of Shipping and Marine Technology at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, has been pushing for more user-friendly bridge technology for many years. She is currently involved in a development project together with two Nordic technology companies.
“We have personnel onboard involved in this project, so it will be technology for seafarers by seafarers,” says Margareta Lützhöft.
