Smart navigation & waterway monitoring
04 December 2019
Navigable waterways are equipped with aids to navigation (AToNs) to make navigation safer and more efficient. Today, they are increasingly equipped with sensors and AIS to become part of the Internet of Things. The aim is to make navigation management smart and connected. This takes place in the framework of the Fairway Danube project.
Fairway Danube has also launched WAMOS. It is a common GIS-platform and stands for Danube Waterway Monitoring System. It pulls together available data from different sources across countries in a harmonised way. It is a powerful information tool for analysis such as the fairway availability across borders for a dynamic free flowing river like the Danube.
