A collaboration with an innovation and digitalisation road map that aims at developing new integrated bridges available from 2020 for series and megayachts.
The combination of all the TEAM Italia I-Bridge® features and of Onyx Marine Automation monitoring system with the features developed by Rolls-Royce merge perfectly in the MTU SmartBridge, which will integrate the propulsion system, automation, navigation, communication and digital functions.
The bridge developed jointly by the two companies will be already available in 2020 for full-custom megayachts and series yachts.

The new solutions will have one common development platform which will implement the TEAM Italia I-Bridge® with the Onyx monitoring of all onboard systems and, additionally the MTU propulsion system, up to managing the data in the cloud
This will make it easier for users to deal with all vessel management activities, including the “Analytics” activities that are essential for the engineering departments of shipyards.
