Classification society DNV GL has confirmed that it has added support for the ISO19848 data standard for shipboard machinery and equipment to its Veracity maritime data platform, to streamline the collection, storage and analysis of sensor data.
As of May 2020, Veracity has begun supporting both the ingestion of data in the ISO19848 format, and the extraction, querying and exchange of data through Veracity APIs, using the standard.
“Supporting ISO19848 is a natural step for Veracity. We want to help companies increase their rate of innovation. Easy to use data in a standard format enables faster time to market for value adding services,” said Mikkel Skou, Director of Veracity.
“DNV GL has around 12,000 vessels described according to the DNV GL Vessel Information Structure. This model is compliant with the ISO 19848 standard, enabling our customers to work smarter and more effectively with their data.”
“We want to make the digital transformation as easy as we can for our maritime customers. By supporting major data standards like ISO19848, we facilitate for data providers and collectors to integrate on Veracity, knowing data is fit for purpose.”
DNV GL says that it will also introduce a ‘contextualisation as a service’ product to further improve the effectiveness of data-driven applications, helping customers to improve their results by contextualising data from disparate systems against common industry models, such as ISO19848.
In February of this year the ISO 19848 data standard was given officially support by the Smart Maritime Council, the cross-industry maritime technology harmonisation group started by Smart Maritime Network in 2019 to promote agreement on standards in digital data formats. The group includes technology providers, OEMs, shipping companies and a diverse range of related industry stakeholders.
