This NOVIMOVE – smart & sustainable waterways video news update features Eva Christopoulou and Ivo Majoor, both simulation consultants at Systems Navigator. This update shows the important work that these talented researchers are doing in the NOVIMOVE project: developing a simulation scenario in which the individual NOVIMOVE innovations are brought together with the aim of assessing the effects at a higher level of analysis. During this two-day summer workshop in Delft, Eva and Ivo met with academic researchers from Delft University of Technology and the University of Antwerp 🌍, which[…]
🌟 Video Update! 🌟 In May, the NOVIMOVE – smart & sustainable waterways team had the pleasure of gathering in #Basel for our 6th General Assembly. It was a crucial meeting where we came together to ensure that all our work packages are perfectly aligned, fostering a strong sense of unity and camaraderie within our team. We’re delighted to share a retrospective video capturing the highlights of this special occasion, including the valuable insights shared by Prof. Dr. Rudy Negenborn. It was truly an inspiring experience that showcased the remarkable[…]
🎉 Congratulations to Peter Shobayo, a talented researcher involved in the NOVIMOVE – smart & sustainable waterways project and working for the University of Antwerp at the Department of Transport and Regional Economics, on successfully obtaining his PhD title recently! 🎓💼 PhD stands for Doctor of Philosophy, representing the highest academic degree. Peter defended his research, which he dedicated four years to, before a constructive and critical panel of professors during a publicly accessible gathering in Antwerp. The committee included well-known faces from the NOVIMOVE – smart & sustainable waterways[…]
The water levels on the major rivers are becoming increasingly unpredictable. Climate change reduces the stability of the supply of meltwater from the mountains. In combination with long periods of drought and hotter summers, this will increasingly lead to extremely low water levels in the future. In March 2023, TU Delft’s Cornell Thill has been interviewed by the ‘Schuttevaer’ newspaper. You can read the article online by following this link.
On the 28th of March, NOVIMOVE is present during the Maritime Innovation Platform in the Energiehuis in Dordrecht. Our stand ws frequently visited by those who want to find out more about the newest ship concepts for fluctuating water levels. And since it was almost Eastern, the yellow NOVIMOVE Easter chocolate bars could be spotted from a fair distance.
Last week, professor Rudy Negenborn (TU Delft) presented the NOVIMOVE project state of play during the IWT Week. Scheduled to take part on the second day of this week dedicated to IWT, NOVIMOVE covered both two topics on the agenda: resilience (new fluctuating water level-proof ship designs) and automation (Dynamic Lock Scheduling System and Smart Navigation System). With another year to go with this R&D project, the project is about to consolidate some of the main findings soon. A serious game, containing NOVIMOVE innovations and calculating the effects of them,[…]
A explanatory animation has been created to introduce the upcoming NOVIMOVE Serious Game. Due date for release of the game is autumn 2023. The game is currently being finalized under direction of the University of Antwerp team. Teasers are looking promising! You can already pre-register for the game on www.novimove.eu/game.
