Fast vessel performance in limiting sea conditions can be improved by anticipating peak accelerations. Auto Ride Control can be combined with motion prediction based on remote wave sensing by radar. Both technologies have recently been developed within research projects. Do-It will now combine and demonstrate the two technologies in a prototype system on a high speed craft in service conditions.
The project is organised by MARIN and is conducted in close co-operation with partners Radac, Damen Shipyards, NextOcean and within kind support by KNRM.
