Towards Autonomous Offshore Operations
The SFI will become the international knowledge and research hub for the next generation of advanced offshore mechatronic systems for autonomous operation and condition monitoring of topside drilling systems under the control of land-based operation centres, to ensure safe and efficient operation in deeper water and in harsh environments.
The SFI shall contribute significantly to growth and innovation in the industry, creating jobs and business with potential both within the target sector, and beyond, such as maritime industry, with a net positive impact on society.
Egde has been a partner in the SFI since the beginning. We are mainly involved in the “Data analytics, IT integration and Big data” work package of the SFI.
SFI Offshore Mechatronics is a research innovation program, and will be running for 8 years, 2015-2023. For more information please see https://sfi.mechatronics.no/
