MOL Aiming at Safer Operation with a 360° Field of View

MOL Aiming at Safer Operation with a 360° Field of View
Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL), President & CEO: Junichiro Ikeda stated that MOL has teamed up with Oki to start a joint study on the use of OKI’s new “FlyingView®” bird’s-eye view monitoring system to monitor a 360° field of view around a tugboat.

In preparation for the study, the system was installed on the tugboat Asaka Maru owned by Nihon Tug-Boat and a preliminary experiment was conducted.

As a tugboat approaches a large vessel for assistance, only a small part of the vessel’s hull can be seen from tug’s bridge, and therefore, the tugboat relies on instructions through the radio from the pilot onboard the target vessel.

The experiment was undertaken with OKI’s “FlyingView” setting four fish-eye cameras on the mast, and a digital compositing system and display in the bridge, allowing the captain to be able to objectively grasp conditions around the tugboat in real-time. This makes it possible for the tug’s operator to objectively recognize the boat’s surrounding situations. The boat can also instinctively grasp its distance from surrounding obstacles and other vessels, and this leads to reducing the risk of accidental contact with the target vessel and more effectively assisting its safe berthing and unberthing.

MOL positions navigation support systems featuring image recognition, such as the AR Navigation System, which is already in practical use, as part of its challenge project, called the “FOCUS EYE” series, aimed at developing technologies that will contribute to company’s world-leading level of safe operation. It focused on OKI’s “FlyingView” system as a part of the series, with the goal of speeding up its initiatives on enhancing safe operation by advancing joint development of the system, including a study of ways to adopt it on large vessels.
