The pace of technological change is propelling us into the heart of the fourth industrial revolution. The fusion of technologies in the cyber world are blurring the lines between physical, digital and biological spheres – connecting people, systems and data.
Digitization and connectivity is transforming our marine and offshore industries through sensors, as well as data and autonomous systems, improving both performance and compliance. The new norm is data-intensive and requires us to continuously adapt to technological change.
At ABS, we are innovating with data and digital capabilities to safety and effectively bring these technologies to the maritime industry.
The ABS Advisory on Data Quality for Marine and Offshore Application provides an overview of the relevant standards and industry best practices and offers general guidance and recommendations on data quality assessment, monitoring and control as applied to marine and offshore applications.
The ABS Advisory on Structural Health Monitoring: The Application of Sensor-Based Approaches focuses on the collection of data using sensors for the purpose of structural health monitoring. Specifically, it addresses the monitoring of structural loads and/or responses using sensors to infer current structural health status and predict future health states.
