The ships in the port of Hamburg are getting bigger and bigger, their numbers are growing steadily. The Smart Sounding Table supports navigators in the planning and monitoring of ship traffic in the port of Hamburg. It replaces more than 200m2 of paper cards and offers an up-to-date view of the harbor.

With digital ship models, navigators can simulate ship arrivals and identify potential threat situations in advance. The direct interaction with ship models via multitouch picks up habitual analogous concepts and facilitates the adaption of the digital workplace for navigators.
