FernBIN receives funding

The project FernBin started in July 2020. Within the scope of FernBin the coordinated remote-controlled navigation of inland vessels is examined. The vessel will be operated from a remote control station instead of from the wheelhouse of the vessel. All tasks relevant for navigation have to be operated remotely. In order to enable the simultaneous operation of several vessels by a single operator navigational tasks will be automated beyond the current state of art within this project. This project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
