We welcome comments and criticism so feel free to comment right into the Figma document. We depend on your help to be able to improve the system.
OpenBridge expands to remote operations
We have just been awarded a new research grant for expanding OpenBridge to remote and autonomous control centres. The project has 21 partners from industry, academia, regulation, and government. We already have several case studies in work and looking forward to expanding OpenBridge further.
Meet us at hall T at Nor-shipping. You can also participate in an OpenBridge seminar Tuesday from 12.30-13.30.
