MACS: Maritime Control Systems of the Future

The B-IT-endowed Chair for Media Computing, headed by Prof. Jan Borchers, has attracted 180,000 Euros of new third-party funding for the group in December 2011. The project MACS, in collaboration with Vestfold University in Norway and funded by the Norwegian Research Council, builds on the Media Computing Group's research in using tangible widgets on interactive tabletops, and aims to create the control bridge of future large maritime vessels. The funding will support, among other things, a three-year PhD student position in the Media Computing Group to work on this project.
