Marine industry shaper MacGregor teamed up with analytics expert Bigdatapump and sensor specialist ionSign. Together, the three companies form a highly motivated team that aims to change the way data analytics is used in the shipping industry.
MacGregor arranged an innovation day that yielded an idea around cargo flow and safety optimization. This called for smart data retrieval and producing tangible data. The ultimate goal was to maximize cargo area utilization rates. In mid-2016, a functioning proof of concept was designed. Based on the initial success, pilot installations in real-world environments are planned Jan-Feb 2017 and start large-scale production in 2017. Bigdatapump's expertise is cloud-based analytics, while ionSign specialises in electronics and sensors used in measuring and acquiring data, and MacGregor modifies its own cargo equipment to accommodate the sensor technology.
