Next Thursday starting at 9.30, at the Marconi Room of the Grand Hotel Palazzo di Livorno, a workshop will be held entitled "Autonomous Navigation : experimentation and prospects for the growth, sustainability and safety of navigation" that has been organized as part of the activities of valorisation of the results of the 5G Maritime Autonomous Surface Ship (5G MASS) project, funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) and carried out by a consortium of companies and research entities under the supervision of the General Command of the Capitaneries in Porto, made up of Telecom Italia (ringleader), Inter-University Consortium for Telecommunications-CNIT (Technical Coordinator), FlySight, CETENA, Grimaldi.
The 5G MASS project is part of ESA's "Smart and uncrewed shipping" programme and aims at the realization of a broadband data sharing system and low latency between ship and port, based on digital and autonomous navigation. Such a system will be tested, for the first time in Italy, in Livorno, on board a ro-ro ship. The trials will depart in the second semester of this year and will be concluded in the first months of 2024. The tests will be carried out under the supervision of the Maritime Directorate and with the support of the AdSP and the Pilots ' Corps.
In the workshop the Port System Authority will be confronted with the authorities and industries involved in the experimentation to analyse the opportunities offered by the project at the Livorno Industrial Complex and its vast area.
