Testing new technology can be time-consuming and expensive. But digital testing opens up new possibilities.
Digifjord project is developing a digital platform for testing and verifying autonomous ocean technologies. The project includes several disciplines, including design (product, service, and user design), cybernetics, game development, and marine engineering. In short, the Digifjord project will create new knowledge on how easily accessible 3D technology, open data, photogrammetry, and virtual models can be used for the simulation and early testing of autonomous vessels and operations in the ocean space. The aim is increased efficiency and reduce costs for early-phase testing and verification of autonomous systems for maritime applications.
