OPS MASTERPLAN reseach published: ‘Modelling and simulating vessel emissions in real time based on terrestrial AIS data’

Research paper on ‘Modelling and simulating vessel emissions in real time based on terrestrial AIS data’ has been published today at Zenodo.

This paper was presented at Global Oceans 2020:  Singapore – U.S. Gulf Coast by authors: Giannis Spiliopoulos, Dimitris Zissis, Julio De la Cueva, and Ioannis Kontopoulos.

In this paper a complete framework is presented for modelling and estimating vessel GHG emissions and related air pollutants (i.e. CO2 and SOx, NOx and PM) in ports, based on data collected from the Automatic Identification System (AIS).

The approach adopts a modified lambda architecture approach, which consists of a knowledge extraction batch processing step and a real time emissions calculation step. The approach makes it possible to automatically identify the berths or ports where emissions are high in a consistent and uniform way across the globe.

This reseach was carried out by OPS MASTERPLAN for Spanish ports partners Marine Traffic and project Coordinator PUERTOS DEL ESTADO, together with Greek Universities of Athens and Harokopio.
