The patent-pending ULSTEIN BRIDGE VISION™ is a ground-breaking concept that promises major improvements for the operational centres of vessels.

Increased safety and simplicity have been the guiding principles and motivation behind the development of ULSTEIN BRIDGE VISION™, which refines the interaction between users and complex bridge-based systems. ULSTEIN BRIDGE VISION™ offers a catalogue of user-focused innovations, these include:

Gesture-controlled infographics displayed on bridge windows; a system that automatically adapts to the individual user’s preferred setup; and a new breed of user-defined ergonomic work stations.

Due to the scope and ambitious goals of the project, Ulstein acknowledged the need to ‘work with the best to achieve the best’, opting for a collaborative approach. ULSTEIN engineers sought the expertise of industrial, graphic and interaction designers from The Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO).

Together they created a human-centred operational environment for the future ship bridge. The concept includes work space designs and new ways to interact with bridge systems.

“The ergonomic benefits of ULSTEIN BRIDGE VISION™ will help reduce fatigue during complex operations and increase the crew’s ability to concentrate." Kjetil Nordby, Associate Professor Oslo School of Arcitecture and Design (AHO)

Key benefits

The window is the screen

An eye-catching element of the pioneering system is the use of optical projections. Operators can access controls and information by using intuitive touch-commands and gestures.

Personalised workspace

The new bridge adapts both the workspace and software setup to the individual user’s specific requirements.

Ergonomic & flexible

Innovative bridge chair design, with multiple sitting positions. The ergonomic benefits of ULSTEIN BRIDGE VISION™ will help reduce fatigue during complex operations.
