To enhance Taiwan’s independent research and development capabilities in the field of shipping technology and hope to make greater contributions to the country’s future ocean research, the "National Taiwan Ocean University School-level Intelligent Maritime Research Center" was formally established. The school actively cooperates with industry companies to cultivate outstanding students in the field of Intelligent shipping, and to enable students to improve their employment or innovation and entrepreneurial capabilities. After graduation, they can invest their research energy into related industries and society as a contribution, and look forward to the future through Intelligent shipping the research center can push the school's energy internationally and become the benchmark for Intelligent shipping research.
This school in Marine science and technology research as the main body, is a top research teaching excellence and international first-class university, set up Intelligent Marine Research Center, wisdom of the long-term observation of Marine and advanced engineering technology research, and help our coastal ocean science and technology development and expansion, and increase to understand domestic maritime environment and management.
The center has set up Shipping Technology Group、Fishery Technology Group、Satellite Technology Group、Green Energy Technology Group、Intelligent Technology Group and Internet of Things Technology Group, which are responsible for various professional fields respectively.
At the beginning, the center will focus on Marine monitoring with Automatic Identification System, unmanned system of reservoirs, hydrogen fuel energy, research and development of cubic satellite technology and the application of big data in artificial intelligence, and strive for national research programs. In addition, Automatic Identification System will be used to collect and analyze the data of Taiwan's coastal and offshore vessels, so as to establish a big data database of Taiwan's smart shipping.
The pioneer of the school in Taiwan ocean research, also has advanced Marine engineering laboratory, but limited to turbine, merchant, transportation science, control, navigation, fishery, engineering department, information department, and so on various fields of professional technology cannot effectively integrate and research and development, to in the school set up wisdom shipping research center, combining with the excellent teachers of different disciplines and technologies, For future research and planning of related ocean engineering.
The center will also continue to conduct research and, through its professional team from industry and academia, guide the research teams to apply their research results to commercially valuable developments and help the industry solve technical problems.
Committed to the development of marine smart ports and transportation technology, as well as 3D modeling research on unmanned systems in fishing ports and reservoirs, using automatic ship identification systems and underwater sonar scanning technology to achieve sea area use management. Research on global ship dynamic tracking and monitoring and investigation of underwater terrain changes.
In response to the trends and norms of the world's scientific and technological trends, with the vision of using smart technology in marine fisheries, combined with our school’s excellent teaching and research resources and technologies, aiming at coastal fisheries, pelagic fisheries, fishery meteorology, and fishery management to conduct research in other aspects, and hope to achieve the goal of sustainable use of resources.
Focus on the research of cubic satellites, digital communication systems and space telemetry, and develop and design sea area monitoring systems that use cubic satellites to carry optical lenses and automatic ship identification systems to create a global new world synchronized with the world The generation of maritime satellite communication system can effectively monitor the dynamics of ships throughout Taiwan and the world, and improve the safety analysis of maritime navigation and the identification rate of ships in distress at sea.
To study the development of hydrogen fuel as a green energy and energy storage system to replace the electricity generated by the current use of fossil fuels by ordinary and unmanned vehicles, which can reduce air pollution emissions and carbon dioxide's environmental impact The impact of this, combined with Taiwan’s coastal wind energy units, has created a green energy environment in my country, which promotes the source of electricity to meet higher economic benefits and achieve the vision of sustainable operation.
It is dedicated to the research of smart transportation systems in the ocean, harbor and coastal areas, and uses artificial intelligence, unmanned vehicles, block chain and other Intelligent technologies to make adjustments through training and new data. At the same time, it uses Big Data to analyze and forecast, and carry out effective sea area management or emergency accident prevention.
Based on the technology framework of Cyber-physical System (CPS), the Internet of Things (IoT) Technology Group integrates multiple IoT sensing technologies such as RFID, WSN, 5/6G, edge computing, cloud big data exploration, blockchain, multi-dimensional geographic information platform, and decentralization AI to bridge the physical and virtual world to realize the "digital twin" design standard, and use the "digital twin" to facilitate the development of various system engineering standards related to remote monitoring, telemetry, and preventive maintenance. Adopting the aforementioned advanced technologies, the IoT Technology Group further studies and develops various AIoT systems regarding smart ports, smart shipping, intelligent unmanned vehicles, smart transportation and logistics, and green supply chain related applications.
