Shaping the future of energy-efficient seafaring

Route Planing for low fuel consumption - worth the effort?
Have you ever planned a route in shipping? Tell us what works and
what doesn’t when it comes to reducing fuel consumption during route
planing! We want to understand your day-to-day work experience and
hear your opinion! Your
perspective will help us
develop technical systems
support efficient navigation onboard
(instead of just adding one more tool).
For taking part in our 20-30 minute online survey, participants living in the EU will receive a 20€ money transfer.
Energy efficiency has always been a central concern for shipbuilding
and shipping. In the past, mainly economic considerations motivated
the search for low power requirements for a ship. Today,
environmental concerns and compliance with legal regulations to
reduce emissions are coming to the foreground in at least equal
measure. These demand a
consistent strategy of energy efficiency
as well as a significant reduction of emissions not only in the
construction but especially in the operation of ships.
In the MariData project, we are developing a future-oriented energy management and decision support system based on rational methods. However, the actual benefit of any human-technology system is an interplay of technical potential and user behaviour. To this end, MariData prototypes of the front end are being developed in the sense of user-centred design. We lay a strong focus on factors such as user acceptance and trust and evaluations through user studies.
