Is video analytics the answer to safer ships and safer seas?
Join maritime industry experts to explore the benefits of video analytics and meet three innovative technologists during the Lloyd’s Register Safety Accelerator webinar
NOW more than ever, safety is ripe for digital transformation and disruption. This disruption will require not just an influx of ground-breaking new technologies, but re-shaping industry culture, revamping training and even revising traditional processes, in order to effect real change.
One such technology beginning to transform and disrupt how safety and risk is managed in our industries is video analytics.
Dr Maurizio Pilu, vice-president for digital innovation at Lloyd’s Register, explains: “Video analytics is a range of different technologies that aim to extract insight from images and video. It can be used to detect or even predict unsafe situations, spot unintentional operator errors, or avoid accidents by analysing historical events. While it has been used extensively in a range of applications in various industries, its use in maritime is still in its infancy, but if used more widely, it could make a huge difference to safety.”
During the Lloyd’s Register Safety Accelerator webinar on December 3, three leaders from technology companies, who have graduated from the Accelerator, will discuss and debate with us how their solutions with video analytics can be used to tackle safety challenges in maritime.
Dr Pilu says: “In my view, the three companies illustrate the richness and potential of applications of video analytics in the area of maritime safety — each addressing a different class of risk with different solutions.”
Senseye, which completed a pilot with Pacific International Lines in Singapore, uses technology that is also being trialled with jet fighter pilots, to assess in a few seconds fatigue, or other potentially risky conditions of seafarers, before they go out on duty.
Sensing Feeling, which is trialling its privacy-by-design visual analytics technology in the retail sector, is working with bulker and tanker ship manager Scorpio to study whether patterns of behaviour on a bridge correlate with unsafe situations.
IronYun deploys a video analytics solution that allows end-users to configure their own real-time safety monitoring applications, thereby giving the power of AI in the hands of HSE professionals.
Leading maritime companies have recently partnered with the Accelerator on various projects to improve safety outcomes. During the webinar, Scorpio, Wallenius Wilhelmsen and Seaspan will share their journey with the programme; all three companies have worked closely with innovative technologists and deployed new ‘safetytech’ to solve important marine safety challenges. Their experiences and insights will shed light on how we can all work together to pioneer safety innovations in marine and make a real difference in industry.
Andy McKeran, commercial director marine and offshore at Lloyd’s Register, will be joined by Nick Chubb, founder of Thetius, an organisation dedicated to enabling innovation in the maritime industry through a combination of intelligence, strategy, and talent services, during the exclusive industry Fireside Chat. They will debate and explore how we might accelerate the uptake of safetytech in marine, delving into barriers and opportunities, as well as potential use cases of video analytics in the industry.
Join Lloyd’s Register’s award-winning Safety Accelerator for their exclusive webinar, a programme that has engaged with more than 600 start-ups and 20 leading companies in just two years and has been exploring video analytics through various global projects and is now seeing huge potential for safety outcomes in maritime.
