  title={Designing for Safe Maritime Navigation. Studying Control Processes for Bridge Teams},
  author={Victor Pl{\'a}cido da Conceiç{\~a}o},
Several technological advances have been seen the maritime domain to achieve higher operational efficiency and to address the generally recognised causes of most maritime accidents. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) endorses the use of best available technology to “drive continuous improvement and innovation in the facilitation of maritime traffic” in line with the goal of sustainable development. It is commonly acknowledged that modern technology revolutionized marine navigation… 


Identifying Gaps, Opportunities and User Needs for Future E-navigation Technology and Information Exchange
Since IMO’s recent approval of the E-navigation strategy, projects like EfficienSea2 have focused on improving information exchange, safety and efficiency of navigation. To identify current gaps and
Test Bed for Safety Assessment of New e-Navigation Systems
Work as Done? Understanding the Practice of Sociotechnical Work in the Maritime Domain:
Pilots and Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) operators work to improve the safety of navigation of seagoing vessels. As in many other safety-critical domains, work is increasingly characterised by the
Human Factors and Safety Culture in Maritime Safety (revised)
As in every industry at risk, the human and organizational factors constitute the main stakes for maritime safety. Furthermore, several events at sea have been used to develop appropriate risk
Developing a standard methodology for dynamic navigation in the littoral environment
This paper will describe the methodology, the concepts behind its development, and how standardised procedures enhance safety, operational effectiveness and interoperability.
Information environment, fatigue, and culture in the maritime domain
Maritime shipping operates within a complex operational setting and incorporates many types of workplaces and work roles. The maritime domain has been a bit slower than other complex domains in its
Joint Activity in the Maritime Traffic System: Perceptions of Ship Masters, Maritime Pilots, Tug Masters, and Vessel Traffic Service Operators
Teamwork in the maritime traffic system has been identified as an area of concern, and reports suggest there is room for improvement. Such improvements should be based on an understanding of how

    Risk analysis : an official publication of the Society for Risk Analysis
  • 2010
Though this study does not present a new methodology, it can be considered as a reference in the human reliability analysis for the maritime industry, which, in spite of having some guides for risk analysis, has few studies related to human reliability effectively applied to the sector.
