How a real-time-based sea traffic forecast helps to organize and optimize the flow of maritime goods
Author: Dana Meißner
Abstract: As part of the PRESEA research project, which began in summer 2019, a real-time-based sea traffic forecast application is to be developed. In contrast to existing systems that display the position of ships at the time of the query, the new software prototype calculates and shows the expected number of ships in the coming days for any sea area in the world. Such a sea traffic forecast optimizes the coordination of supply chains, and supports the planning of personnel, supply facilities, environmental protection, and safety measures.
