Our domestic transition process for the intellectual property “Data Communication System in Ships” that we invented and filed for a patent has been completed.
Name of the invention: Data Communication System in Ships
Date of registration: February 6th, 2023 (Reiwa 5)
This invention is an intellectual property composed of an information processing system, aimed at facilitating communication and collaboration among next-generation maritime mobility, including ships at sea, drones, and autonomous ships. It was created with a vision of contributing to the realization of two-way communication between humans and robots, in a world where the use of AI and automation is accelerating, even at sea.
In 2022 (Reiwa 4), we created a proof of concept (PoC) with UI, AR, and VDES IP integration functions, incorporating technologies for facilitating smooth communication at sea. The purpose of this was to verify hypotheses and demonstrate the effectiveness of the system with the cooperation of the Japan Coast Guard, ship crews, small ship operators, and watermen.
We will strengthen our intellectual property rights in the maritime communication field and strategically transition them to other countries, while also pursuing the development and verification of new inventions and the filing of further patents.
