Rolls-Royce predicts that Ship Intelligence will be the next major transition for the shipping industry as ships are set to become more complex and will require high levels of data analysis to operate on-board systems to manage propulsion, navigation and potentially lead to autonomous vessels.
Together with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Rolls-Royce today unveiled its latest vision of Ship Intelligence - a futuristic ship's bridge concept which could become reality by 2025.
Rolls-Royce has worked together with VTT's researchers and Aalto University to develop the new bridge, known as the Future Operator Experience Concept or ‘oX'. It offers the crew smart workstations, which automatically recognise individuals when they walk into the bridge, and adjust to their own preferences.
The windows of the bridge serve as augmented reality displays of the vessel's surroundings, including visualisation of potential hazards that would otherwise be invisible to the human eye. The system can, for example, pinpoint sea ice or tug boats and other craft that may not be visible to the crew, especially on large container ships.
Mikael Makinen, Rolls-Royce, President - Marine, said: "We are entering a truly exciting period in the history of shipping, where technology, and in particular the smart use of Big Data is going to drive the next generation of ships. Over the next ten to 20 years we believe Ship Intelligence is going to be the driving force that will determine the future of our industry, the type of ships at sea, and the competence levels required from tomorrow's seafarers.
"The new oX bridge concept, is one example of ship intelligence, and is a glimpse into the future where significant advances to navigation, efficiency of operations and safety at sea, can be achieved.
"With the demands of environmental legislation and rising operating costs, ships are going to become more complex. Add to that the fact that skilled crews are already in short supply, then we see a distinct gap opening up between the complexity of ships and the competency of the people who will crew them"
The oX concept, has been developed by studying user experience on ships today, and will transform the operating environment for crews on board large cargo ships and platform supply vessels.
Today, Rolls-Royce already has many of the technologies that will be part of the intelligent ships of the future. The Unified Bridge system has recently entered service on the vessel Stril Luna.
The remote monitoring of equipment on board ships is also advancing, and Rolls-Royce has control centres in Alesund, Norway, and Rauma, Finland, where many ships and thrusters are already monitored in real-time in operation around the world.
Oskar Levander, Rolls-Royce, Vice President - Innovation - Marine, speaking at a Ship Intelligence briefing in London today, said: "Many of the technology building blocks that will control the ships of the future are already available today, but there is still work to be done to develop marine solutions from them. We are investing in ship intelligence, which will be a major driver of the next transition era of shipping. Much in the way that sail gave way to steam powered ships, and coal gave way to oil, we will see increasingly sophisticated ships, highly automated and perhaps even unmanned remote controlled, plying the seas within the next two decades."
Just Read the Instructions, also known as the autonomous spaceport drone ship (ASDS), was an ocean-going, barge-derived, floating landing platform that aerospace company SpaceX used in early 2015 to conduct several tests to receive returning first stages after the boosters had lofted spacecraft into orbit.

The ship was converted from a barge named Marmac 300 in late 2014 and was deployed in January 2015 during the CRS-5 cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station in order to provide a landing platform for a test flight of the returning booster stage. It was used for three test landings through April 2015, and by June 2015, was retired as an ASDS.[10]

SpaceX ASDS ships form an important element of the SpaceX reusable launch system.

SpaceX plans to eventually use ASDS as a floating launch platform, refueling a landed first stage with sufficient fuel to enable it to fly back to its launch site. No date has been provided for when this capability would be developed, tested or made operational.
