Research Project BESST

"Breakthrough in European Ship- and Shipbuilding Technology"

Within this EU-funded project all large European shipyards, their suppliers, and research organisations investigate how to increase the efficiency of modern passenger cruisers and ferries. The production and operation of ships are analysed with regards to energy conservation, environmental care, cost reduction and increase of security and comfort for passengers.

Future-Shape’s task within the project is the development of scenarios in which the SensFloor technology is applied to meet these goals. At the premises of project partner MEYER Werft in Papenburg, Germany, Future-Shape installs demonstrators for passenger counting, intelligent control of automatic doors, emergency guidance, and space-saving entertainment systems.
