Inspiration session: IoT sensors
This Inspiration session, we zoomed in on the crucial role of sensors in the transition to smart ships, together with Sealution, Toqua and Verhaert.
A wide variety of sensors are coming onto the market and they often connect through various platforms: SCADA or IoT or both? Do you go for robust sensors and wait till maturity or do you add experimental sensors and let AI filter the data? Key challenge: how might we combine industry robustness and innovative agility in the choice of IoT Sensors and IoT Platforms to ensure that enough data is available to make insightful decisions and develop new data-driven applications.

17.00-17.30: Enabling connectivity below deck
Sebastian Hamers, Co-founder & CEO Sealution
Founded in 2021, Sealution is a B2B hardware enabled software startup that provides connectivity on board of merchant vessels, enabling efficient data collection below deck. Sealution developped a unique and modular PnP solution, to which numerous IoT devices can be connected and integrated.
17.30-18.00: Decarbonizing Shipping with better ship performance models
Roland Erfurth, Naval Architect – Account Executive, Toqua
Toqua aims to accelerate the decarbonization of the shipping industry by offering an accurate vessel performance model based on high-frequency data. Today's ship performance models often for a weak link in decision-making and optimization. With more and more ships capturing sensor data, they discovered a new way to make these models with much higher accuracy, leading to additional fuel savings and more accurate monitoring.
