The Value Stream
Maritime datasets are highly complex, diverse and difficult to interpret. In addition, the large amounts of maritime data and its variety often lead to problems in processing and managing. In comparison to existing solutions TrueOcean will provide the ability to work in a NextGen webbased system and enable a boundless cloudbased management of maritime Big Data. In particular, TrueOcean manages and processes raw datasets which will provide way deeper insights and possibilities in terms of analysis and datafusion than ever before.
The management of the large scale datasets is done via a perfectly user-centered interface with mapping and analysis as the core components of the webbased system. TrueOcean provides easy and particularly cost efficent handling of maritime Big Data. Due to its cloudbased nature TrueOcen can handle massive amounts of data independent from place and time and local ressources. Therefore, it acts as a central reliable datahub for large scale business and research operations.
For data interpretation and analysis a set of advanced functionalities will be provided to enable tailored solutions for highly individual questions. Usually the data complexity causes a time-consuming manual processing and presupposes a deep understanding of the measurement and its results. TrueOcean minimizes exactly this kind of expensive pre- and postprocessing steps and provides the user relevant key information for their specific questions. In addition, the centralised map interface enables fast and easy access to relevant datasets based on geoinformatic approaches.
For analysis and visualization the most actual scientific methods from the fields of artificial intelligence, visual computing and remote sensing are applied. For high performance analysis and efficient processing GPU-based parallelization techniques are developed and implemented. Due to the continuous improvement of browser and webbased technologies a completely new way of interaction with large scale maritime datasets is possible and will be made available with TrueOcean.
Data analytics is besides efficient management and informative visualization the third imporant pillar of TrueOcean. The analytical methods developed specifically for TrueOcean will provide deeper insights than ever and will support effectively the visual information provided. A key factor is the combination of multiple kinds of sensor datasets as well as the embedding of external information (e.g. AIS, weather, currents). In addition, quality metrics are implemented that provides our customers with critical information about the quality and accuracy of the measurements.
TrueOcean is used for object detection and automatic classification based on large object catalogs and actual deep-learning technologies. Due to intense research and ongoing improvements of our algorithms and deep-learning models we enable our customers to constantly dive deeper into data. TrueOcean will also provide functionalities monitoring underwater infrastructure and waterways. Due to the usage of raw data, the analytical approaches (e.g. change detection) can provide results with a higher degree of detail and increased informative value than ever before.
