First successful tests @MARIN!
From the 13th of January until 24th of January Smart-Ship's prototype was installed in the MARIN FSSS motion based simulator, where performed tests and demonstrated the possibilities of our technology to an expert user group.
The first results look extremely promising and the involved expert user group was very positive!
For now we'll improve our product even more with the collected feedback; which is to be implemented and demonstrated in a 2nd round of tests later this year.
