To reach real-life implementation and maximum impact of developed solutions, we have worked to create and promote new international standards and globally accepted best practices. In the EU and around the world, a steady stream of e-Navigation and e-Maritime solutions in different shapes and sizes is being produced. In order to gain the full potential of such solutions, a certain level of standardisation needs to be introduced. This will enable harmonised services from multiple providers that appear the same to the end user. Today, the navigator has to switch between multiple services, service providers and interfaces, which causes distress.
A navigator will be able to use the same METOC service throughout the entire route, although imperceptibly using different service providers and data sources along the way.
At EfficienSea2 we have transformed our developed solutions into international standards and globally accepted best practices, where possible. Direct work by partners in standard-setting organisations such as IALA, IEC, IHO, ITU and WMO as well as influencing the regulative regimes in the EU and IMO in particular will be important outputs of the project.
