Vessel traffic simulators | vts
The MARIN Vessel Traffic Simulator (VTS) has been the perfect training tool for VTS operators for years, consisting of a flexible and interactive instructor and trainee system, in compliance with IMO and IALA guidelines.
Today logistics and transportation are more and more data driven. Shipping is still an important link in the logistic chain. In inland waterway transport the traditional VTS will disappear and will be replaced by Vessel Traffic Management (VTM). With the further development of autonomous shipping, operators in shore control centres will become even more important.
MARIN recognizes these developments and is building a new Seven Oceans Simulator centre. The new SOSc will include a dedicated VTM/SCC Lab to be ready for future vessel traffic management.
