Embed is participating in the project ‘RAAK MKB – Internet der maritieme dingen‘ (Internet of maritime things). The purpose of this project is to connect innovative systems for positioning in the maritime and offshore sector.

In 2008 a preparatory phase of the project has took place. Project teams ‘Tracking in the recreational shipping’, ‘Knowledge yacht construction’ and ‘Knowlegde centre computer vision’ of the NHL Hoogeschool worked on this preparatory phase.
During this phase the project teams discovered that the communication between several systems for positioning (in the maritime and offshore setor) is not properly regulated yet.

In the project RAAK MKB – internet der maritieme dingen, the participants of the project deepen the gained knowledge and insights from the preparatory phase. Within this project the participants develop hardware and software. With this hardware and software existing sensordata can be read, linked and used for the development of intelligent systems.

The NHL Hogeschool is the coordinator of this project. Embed is part of the Steering Committee.
