The acronym stands for eMaritime Integrated Reference Platform, an initiative of the German maritime industry for improving safety and efficiency. The idea is that the eMIR will prevent collisions, help incorporate environmental considerations and optimize the logistical aspects of the maritime transportation chain. The internationally focused research and development institute for selected information technology and applied IT research OFFIS is exhibiting the e-Navigation element of eMIR at HANNOVER MESSE 2016.
Among other things, visitors will be offered illustrative examples of the innovative maritime information and communication technologies, new assistance and monitoring systems and innovative control technology that go to make up e-Navigation. As one of the key fields of transportation research and consulting performed by the Oldenburg-based OFFIS IT institute, e-Navigation forms the framework for developing assistance systems for coordinating evasive maneuvers to avoid collisions and for new system architectures for the seafaring vessels that will in future navigate their own courses.
