01/01/2011 FP 7 project Team Safety
The development project for an innovative 3D virtual team-training maritime safety simulation platform
The aim of this project is to design a 3D virtual and interactive team-training software platform to serve the seafarers' safety training needs and to meet safety requirements, set up for the various maritime industries. The prototype to be delivered will be a distributed, scalable, collaborative interactive simulation environment that will enable training of seafarers.
The aim of the project partners:Nautical Institute, World Maritime University, Sea & Shore Safety Services - Norway, Ask Safety, Danish Innovation Institute, Unity Studios and BMTC is to minimise through the advanced training provided by this project, business interruption and loss of property as well as preserving the European maritime environment through reduced oil spills and most importantly decreasing significantly the chances of sustaining injuries and loss of human life.
