AIS: Increasing Ferry Safety with the Big Data Tool You Already Have on Board

Understand how AIS data can be used to increase ferry safety, operational efficiency & passenger satisfaction

This webinar has already taken place on Thursday, November 2, 2017. Please fill out the form on the right to watch the recording.

The IMO has mandated that ferries use AIS tracking systems for over a decade, but many operators do not realize the full power of AIS as a cost-effective tool for operations and big data analysis. Using the Genscape Vesseltracker service, which harnesses data from already-installed AIS transponders, ferry operators can increase their safety, operational efficiency, and passenger satisfaction, without capital costs for new monitoring equipment.

Watch Genscape Vesseltracker and the Worldwide Ferry Safety Association's on-demand webinar that will provide key market insights that can be leveraged to ensure ferry safety and conduct efficient operations. The presentation was followed by a live Q&A session, during which we answered any questions posed before and during the webinar.

By watching this on-demand webinar, you will:

  • Understand how ferry operators can increase safety in extreme weather conditions by monitoring the AIS positions of their fleet and other nearby vessels
  • Learn how to mine historical AIS data to find collisions and reveal their causes
  • Conduct market research on new routes or proposed new landings to meet regulatory approval
  • Uncover easy, low-cost opportunities for ferry operators to improve their customers' experience

Please fill out the form on the right to watch the on-demand webinar.
