NAVIGATING MASS: A SHORT GUIDE TO THE MARLAB PROTOTYPE DATA PORTAL
As part of the UK Maritime Coastguard Authority (MCA) MARLab project, Solis Marine and MariTrace have developed a system to demonstrate how multiple data sources from a single port can be consolidated into a single location, making them available for Marine Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) to access the data on demand.
The system, which has been developed as a Minimum Viable Product (MVP), is designed to:
- Demonstrate the concept of a “data hub” to help make the testing of autonomous vessels in UK waters safe for everyone
- Give MASS developers access to test the hub and the datasets available through it, allowing MARLab to gather valuable feedback
- Explore system architecture and technology solutions for full scale development
- Identify potential design considerations or sticking points
This short video provides an introductory overview to the MVP system architecture, the interface utilities and the data sets which are available.
Anyone interested in becoming involved and testing the system is asked to get in touch with Rosalind Blazejczyk either by email
