Maritime IT conference 2019

Students, industry representatives and HVL staff took the opportunity to catch up on the latest maritime IT and cybersecurity research and development during the Maritime IT conference at November 8 in Haugesund.

Did you know Haugesund is planning an autonomous ferry? Haugesund mayor Arne-Christian Mohn told us. Joel Scanlan from the University of Tasmania/HVL discussed the accelerating need for maritime cybersecurity and Tim Stratmann from the University of Oldenburg explained how we can support navigators in looking at 'the right places'. Marlink and partners told us about world-class vessel ICT solutions, followed by a demonstration of the HVL meteorology virtual reality teaching application. The conference ended with Nils Haktor Bua from the Norwegian Maritime Authority outlining what the maritime directorate is doing in the maritime space.
