SMASH!, is the Netherlands Forum for Smart Shipping, which brings the Dutch maritime sector together to implement smart shipping and strengthen the Dutch international competitive position. SMASH! is an abbreviation for smart shipping: highly automated sailing at sea, in ports and on inland waterways.
In the Netherlands, a large number of organizations and companies are working on smart shipping and developments in the field of autonomous sailing. Currently these initiatives are very fragmented. By working together on a national scale, regional initiatives can be connected and generate a bigger impact. It is also easier to establish international connections. SMASH! brings together companies, government and knowledge institutions to do so.
On 6th of December 2022, MOSES project was (re)presented by TNO colleague Mr. Hans van den Broek, during SMASH!UP Skills en Shore Control Centers: ervaringen en onderzoeks- en opleidingsbehoeften (SMASH!UP Skills en shore control centers, design choices and human factors challenges), that took place at Schiezaal van Rotterdam Mainport Institute/STC in Rotterdam.
