Work Packages

The IMAT project will develop and test land-based sensors, communication systems and control systems used as a means of support to autonomous vessels. The technological infrastructure will be able to provide the transportation systems with increased sensor redundancy and it will be an integrated part to the transport system, that will ensure safe and effective operation. A transportation system consists of various control centres (RCC– Remote Control Centre, LIC – Local Information Centre), Control centres operating a autonomous vessel, Traffic centres (VTS – Vessel Traffic Service, Port services), the implemented technological infrastructure and of course the MASS vessel. Thus, the interaction between technologies, organizations and humans is essential within the project. Work packages are: 

  1. Sensor and communication infrastructure
  2. Local information centre, distribution of local information
  3. Control centre
  4. Traffic monitoring and control
