Fujitsu Launches AI Tech with Highly Accurate Predictions

Fujitsu advertised a highly accurate AI technology that can predict vessel collision risks on bay areas and other complex sea routes. The company conducted Field experiments between 2020 and 2021. It had a contract with the Japan Coast Guard to confirm the value of the new technology.

Fujitsu earlier analyzed AI technology and its ability to measure and predict ship accident risks based on its position, speed, and direction. 

Now, the company added an additional algorithm to this technology to measure the degree to which the ship is following its path, allowing more accurate risk prevention.

This innovation makes it possible to only give alerts in circumstances with a high risk of an accident. Those accidents include course changes along a path that will no longer be wrongly detected as dangerous.

The company conducted field trials of this new technology at the Tokyo Wan Vessel Traffic Service Center. It also had a contract with the Japan Coast Guard. The Japan Coast Guard is responsible for managing maritime traffic control services. The trial result demonstrated that this technology could decrease unnecessary alerts by about 91% on every sea route, especially curved sections where warnings frequently happened. This upgraded technology allows the early identification of vessels at risk while improving maritime traffic security and safety by decreasing unnecessary traffic control services and human errors.

 

Background

Japan conducts more than 98% of its imports and exports through sea trade. The current situation of the COVID pandemic affected and limited people’s movement, which made logistics even more important. Besides that, recent severe maritime collisions worldwide received increased attention to the significance of guaranteeing marine traffic safety.

Accidents include direct damage to the ship and severe damage to human life as well as the environment. Lost opportunities also cause indirect damage because of broken vessels.
