Roll-Royce And Intel To Put Data Centres On Intelligent Ships
We’ve had Microsoft recently putting data centres underwater, now we have these two floating them around the world’s seas.
Rolls-Royce and Intel are to collaborate on designs for intelligent shipping systems that will include on-board data centres to make commercial shipping safer and more efficient.
The partners said the drive will advance smart, connected and data-centric systems for ship owners, operators, cargo owners and ports. “With a focus on safety, new ships will have systems with the same technology found in smart cities, autonomous cars and drones,” they said.
The new shipping intelligence systems will have data centre and artificial intelligence capabilities, as well as “sophisticated edge computing throughout”, that independently manages navigation, obstacle detection and communications.
“The components embedded in these systems are dedicated to work load consolidation, edge computing, communications and storage,” the companies said.
Kevin Daffey, Rolls-Royce, director of engineering & technology and ship intelligence, said: “We look forward to working together on developing exciting new technologies and products, which will play a big part in enabling the safe operation of autonomous ships.
“This collaboration can help us to support ship owners in the automation of their navigation and operations, reducing the opportunity for human error and allowing crews to focus on more valuable tasks.”
Adrian Criddle, general manager and SVP of Intel UK, said: “Rolls-Royce is a key driver of innovation in the shipping industry and we are proud to be working with them on smart, connected and data-centric systems, that will be a foundation for safe shipping operations around the world in the future.”
Intel technologies thrown into the mix include the Intel Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) to provide engineers with a flexible platform and the IP and components for edge operations, such as obstacle detection and navigation.
Intel Xeon Scalable Processors optimised for high performance computing (HPC) technology will manage complex modelling of ship functions. And Intel Optane memory and storage platforms will be used to ensure ship intelligence systems are reliable, responsive and support extracting maximum value from the data generated, through real-time analysis and systems modelling.
