A host of Japanese maritime players including NYK, Japan Marine United, Mitsubishi, Furuno, Japan Radio, BEMAC, ClassNK and NAPA have teamed up to establish the Maritime and Ocean Digital Engineering (MODE) cooperation programme at the University of Tokyo.

Beginning on 1 October, MODE aims to address the challenges of increasing safety, moving towards decarbonisation and integrating autonomous technology by using the model-based development (MBD) and model-based systems engineering (MBSE), which are increasingly being introduced in the automobile industry.

As the programme develops, the University of Tokyo’s Graduate Schools of Frontier Sciences and Engineering will aim to build broader networks with research institutes around the world that are promoting advanced engineering initiatives, as well as experts from other industries such as automobiles, aerospace and aviation.

An inaugural symposium is scheduled for the afternoon of 4 October.
