Maritime Industry

Transportation has already been very active in the Internet of Things (IoT) development, with transportation and logistics companies being some of the first to adopt IoT in their daily business. The transformative power of IoT has already made an impact on the traditionally conservative maritime industry. In fact, maritime has an advantage over many other industries when it comes to IoT implementation and adoption. For decades, ships have been carrying a multitude of sensors onboard, collecting data that, until recently, has not been utilized and analyzed to optimize the maritime operations. The Advanced Process Control and Industrial IoT may be as disruptive for maritime as the steam engine or the introduction of cargo containers were in the past. Accelerated by  software, wireless, and cloud technology, the adoption of IoT by the maritime industry has already began.
