Enhanced Perception Ashore (EPA)
Research Project, 2024 – 2026

Maritime transport is undergoing a revolutionary change, where an increased degree of digital decision support is being implemented within the industry, both on board ships, in waterways and in ports. Previous projects such as Reeds (Reeds, 2023) and New Sensors (New Sensors, 2021) have identified several types of perception sensors with strong potential to improve maritime safety and promote more sustainable maritime transport. The new sensors can complement established sensors in short-distance shipping, and this requires the development of cost-effective perception systems to enable data collection to higher automated systems, both on board and on land. The project's goal is to adapt these sensors for maritime purposes when placed on land.
