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)
