AR Navigation System earns Innovation Endorsement Certificate from ClassNK

MOL announced that its AR navigation system, jointly developed with FURUNO Electric, has acquired certification in the Products & Solutions (P&S) category of Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK)’s new “Innovation Endorsement” certification service tailored to innovative technologies and initiatives.

The AR Navigation System provides visual support to crewmembers during their watch- keeping and ship operations by using augmented reality (AR) technology to superimpose images taken from the bridge and voyage information.

ClassNK, a classification society, certifies products and solutions under the “Innovation Endorsement” certification for products that contribute to enhanced environmental protection and safety at sea by promoting their widespread use and development. Granting of the certification confirms a product’s capabilities to improve operating safety through the use of digital technology.

The AR navigation system has already been installed on MOL Group-operated vessels as required, and the group will use this certification as an opportunity to further expand the number of vessels equipped with this system.

MOL continually positions safety as a top priority, and proactively develops and improves products, including this AR navigation system, that contribute to the safety of marine traffic, with the aim of earning customers’ continued trust and becoming their first choice for shipping and logistics services.

MOL Group will contribute to realizing a sustainable society by promoting responses to sustainability issues, which are identified as social issues that must be addressed as priorities through its business. We anticipate this initiative to contribute especially to the realization of “Safety & Value -Provide added value through safe transportation and our social infrastructure business-” and “Innovation – Innovation for development in marine technology.”
