Innovasjonspartnerskap: Staut- kjøretøysperre til å stole på

av Harald Aas

Vårt nordiske klima er utfordrende for bevegelige kjøretøysperrer. Slitasje i form av salting, brøyting, erosjon, store temperatursvingninger, dårlig drenering og vanninntrengning øker behovet for service og hyppig utskifting av sperretrinn. I en bysituasjon hvor kontinuerlig drift er høyt prioritert er det utfordrende.

Innovation partnership: Support tool for the Norwegian Pilot Service

av Harald Aas

The Norwegian Coastal Administration’s Pilot Service helps safeguard traffic at sea by providing a vessel’s own crew with vital knowledge of the waters through which it must navigate to and from Norwegian ports. In addition to the pilot’s professional expertise and extensive local knowledge, digital support tools are also used. The systems are effective, but are also subject to factors that may impair their accuracy. Through this innovation partnership, the Norwegian Coastal Administration wishes to stimulate the development of support tools for the Pilot Service that compensate for equipment unreliability and can alert the pilot to interference.
