Roberta Weisbrod, Executive Director of the Worldwide Ferry Safety Association, writes:

The Third Annual Ferry Safety and Technology conference, sponsored by the Worldwide Ferry Safety Association, will push forward on cutting edge issues explored at previous conferences. Included will be:

E-Learning: At long last a course for crew will be unveiled for use on a mobile platform.

Real time weather on routes: Washington State Ferries is the only system that has weather monitors on its routes. The safety and efficiency of other ferry systems would benefit from weather monitoring of routes. Presentations on how to make that happen.

Communication and Telematics: Enhanced communication between ferries and terminals improves safety, security and efficiency. Different ways to make that happen will be presented. Telematics, the long distance transmission of engine diagnostics and performance, can be utilized on ferries and coupled with other information (e-learning, weather, passenger data) to enhance safety, and reduce fuel and insurance costs.

Advances in developing nations: The past year has seen a major increase in ferry initiatives and innovations in developing nations, opening markets and stimulating ideas.
