Internet of Ships

Ship Data Center Co., Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary set up by ClassNK, announced the global launched of IoS-OP (Internet of ships open platform), a platform for data distribution and utilization under common rules, at a seminar held during Sea Asia Exhibition.

The aim of the IoS-OP is to create a new maritime cluster in the digital age that will continue throughout future generations. In order to accomplish this, IoS-OP distinguishes cooperative domain and competitive domain. In the cooperative domain, IoS-OP users will collect and safely store data at ShipDC and ShipDC will distribute the data under common rules agreed by the stakeholders. In the competitive domain, IoS-OP users will utilize the data and create data-driven innovation.

Speaking on the launch of IoS-OP, Mr. Yasuhiro Ikeda, President of ShipDC said: “We have prepared a platform where everyone could make data-driven innovation under the agreed rules. Now, it is time to invite everyone to join the initiative to create innovative solution in the maritime industry.”
