Book Description

Smart shipping is a future method for transporting ocean cargo and exploring the resources of oceans for medical drugs, food, energy resources, and other products. A smart ship is an integration of shipping with many fields such as fishing, manufacturing, navigation, communication, computing, control, sensing, etc., to provide better shipping and services. The purpose of this edited book is to provide state‐of‐the‐art approaches and novel technologies for smart ships coving a range of topics in the areas so that it will be an excellent reference book for the researchers, students and professionals in these areas. It presents the fundamental technologies needed to build smart ships, and a clear explanation of them. This book will serve as good reference for researchers to know the state of the art and to discover uncovered territory and develop new applications, as well as a guideline for building future smart ships.
