At the end of July we were invited by the University of Stuttgart and the Institute of Transportation Research Stuttgart (which is part of Germany’s excellence cluster „simulation technology“) to take part in a workshop on maritime performance calculation on August 24, 2016. After several warm-up presentations, it was discussed how existing algorithms can be improved, in order to generate more accurate results and faster calculation times.
It could be noted, that further research for the improved performance and capacity in the calculation of shipping routes is needed. Main applications in particular apply for shearing and intersecting traffic. According to the participants, there is significant ongoing research, but the results cannot be applied in practice. At the end of the day, each participant was satisfied with the workshop and everyone agreed to work together on future development projects.
We are permanently expanding our Terrestrial AIS Network!
To keep you updated, here’s an overview of this Month new AIS stations:
With the release of our new Historical Track module we now provide a free, monthly budget to all users of FleetMon with an Unlimited, SAT15 or SAT 50 account. On every first day of the month, your credit balance will be replenished. Should you already own a credit budget, the gift credits will be used first.
The cruise industry has been experiencing especially dynamic development.
Within just 10 years, the number of passengers has tripled. In Germany alone, more than 1.77 million people took part on an ocean cruise in 2014.Read more…
Container vessels represent a type of ship which transport standardized ISO containers. Their cargo capacity is measured in TEU (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units).Today, more than 90 % percent of the trade between countries is carried by container ships. The largest vessels are nearly 1313 feet long and can carry more than 20 000 TEU. All container vessels represented in the following density map are over 330 feet long.
Security in networks has been an ongoing iusse for many years.
With the intensive use of communication technology as open and collaborative, the increasingly interconnected world, makes computers and data ever more difficult to secure. Confidential information eventually finds its way to third parties.
We would like to introduce our new Intern Mr. Mohammad Liton Hossain from Bangladesh.
As part of his Master’s degree program in computer science at the University of Rostock (M.Sc. Computational Science and Engineering), Mohammad is now undertaking a two month internship at FleetMon.
The Ferderal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) announced the Year of science 2016/17 with the motto “Seas and Oceans – Discovering, Using, Protecting“.
We are introducing a new shiny labeling display.
We made the display of the vessel tracks even more precise and introduced a new modus for the last track of a selected vessel. If the vessel is on its journey for more then 24h FM Explorer will recall the traveled route to the last port visited.
The new feature will give you more insight with just a single click.
