Implementation of River Information Services in Europe
Increasing the safety and efficiency of inland navigation
Vessel skippers need up-to-date navigational maps that accurately depict current hydrodynamic conditions in order to safely pilot rivers – especially along complex stretches. As part of the European Commission-supported Implementation of River Information Services in Europe 3 (IRIS Europe 3) project, we developed an automated forecasting system that provides this information in real-time. Skippers can use this information and the automatically updated navigational maps to safely and more efficiently steer their vessels.
