About the Project

Shipping big data analysis and modelling 

An automatic identification system (AIS) is mandated by IMO that any vessel over 300GT has an AIS VHF Transceiver on board that continuously gives off various details such as: MMSI, Heading, Draft, Speed, Engine Status, Position etc. The positional big data can aid better shipping decisions and help us better understand market information and commodity flow. The data can also be used to enable a greener shipping industry.

The project is to model ship availability based on AIS and ship draught data and model movement of cargos across countries using AIS and draught data, thus to explore commodity flow, vessel availability and vessel emissions. The modelling of global fleet behaviours will enable AI driven shipping optimisation of shipping management and broking.
