Full title of the project: Internet on the Baltic Sea – a multisystem, self-organizing teleinformatic network at sea to improve maritime safety through e-navigation services development
Project aim: The purpose of the project is the development of novel mechanisms for wireless networks self-organization. Those mechanism are expected to be the background for an infrastructure that would cover a number of systems (UMTS, LTE, WiFi, WiMAX, AIS, VDES, etc.) and would provide fast data transmission:
• between ships,
• between ships and data storage / data processing centers,
• between ships and the Internet.
The wireless communications at sea will improve maritime safety through the provision of e-navigation services. The outcome of the project will be technical specification, implementation and verification of the proposed solutions in real conditions. The devices as well as applications will be tested in a pilot installation set up in the Baltic Sea region.
