New algorithms track ships in harbors

The security of port areas involves monitoring at various levels. What kind of ships are coming in, are they perhaps guilty of illegal fishing, and what cargo do they carry? Security officers and harbor masters often can’t carry out these control duties all by themselves, which is why ports around the world are increasingly making use of smart surveillance systems to monitor maritime territory. TU/e researcher Amir Ghahremani developed new algorithms as well as a learning system to improve vessel identification. He will obtain his Ph.D. degree at the department of Electrical Engineering on Friday June 24.
