Bigger ships, faster speeds, greater port efficiency, and more regulations result in a higher demand for public accountability than ever before. The overall goal of e-navigation is to provide an approach on how to face these demands.
If current technological advances continue without proper coordination there is a risk that the future development of marine navigation systems will be hampered through a lack of standardization on board and ashore, incompatibility between vessels and an increased and unnecessary level of complexity.
A major challenge of the e-navigation work is to embrace the human element. There is a clear and compelling need to equip shipboard users and those ashore responsible for the safety of shipping with modern, proven tools that are optimized for good decision making, in order to make maritime navigation and communications more reliable and user friendly.
