Using the operational envelope to make autonomous ships safer
The introduction of autonomous shipping as a new transport form is about to start. Defining exactly what situations the autonomous ship must be able to handle, here called the "operational envelope" is obviously important. This will be the basis for assigning responsibilities to humans or automation...
Human Factors, autonomous ships and constrained coastal navigation
This is a concept paper making propositions for MASS navigation in national coastal waters. The focus is on human factors and the interaction between automation and operators in a remote control centre, as well as seafarers on conventional ships interacting with MASS. Important element is to...
A framework for description of autonomous ship systems and operations
ID3496: Using the operational envelope to make autonomous ships safer
Using the BIMCO Shipping KPI Database to identify costs and benefits of e-navigation solutions
Integrated Maritime Autonomous Transport Systems (IMAT)
There is an increasing focus on autonomous transport systems, and Norway has a technological and market advantage for such systems in the maritime segment. The national transport plan emphasizes that it is an objective to transfer more cargo onto keel. The MarOff, Maritim21, Hav21 programs and the...
ICT for Sustainable Shipping
Addressing the Accidental Risks of Maritime Transportation: Could Autonomous Shipping Technology Improve the Statistics?
A paradigm shift is presently underway in the shipping industry promising safer, greener and more efficient ship traffic. In this article, we will look at some of the accidents from conventional shipping and see if they could have been avoided with autonomous ship technology. A hypothesis of...
Survey on Communication and Networks for Autonomous Marine Systems
The rapid development of autonomous systems and Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) create new opportunities for maritime activities. Existing autonomous systems are becoming more powerful and utilise the capabilities of several types of devices such as Autonomous Underwater Vehicles...
