Hyundai Heavy Industries is developing communication technology, including real-time monitoring of transportation systems, to keep up with the “digitalisation of ships”.

The shipbuilder is partnering with the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) to develop a group communication system to support two-way radio, TRS, and mobile phones.

ETRI said an IDGPS positioning system, YAN-integrated management platform, and terminal handling system are being developed and are undergoing on-site testing, according to asiasis.com.
