Developments toward the unmanned ship

  title={Developments toward the unmanned ship},
  author={{\O}rnulf Jan R{\o}dseth and Hans-Christoph Burmeister},
This paper provides an overview of the initial position and rationale regarding the development of an unmanned ship. This is based on the proposal for the EU-funded project MUNIN (Maritime Unmanned Navigation through Intelligence in Networks). Based on the European vision of an autonomous ship, MUNIN’s understanding of autonomy, its contribution towards a sustainable maritime transport system and the current key challenges for implementing unmanned vessels will be explained.

Autonomous COLREGs Compliant Ship Navigation, Using Bridge Simulators and an Unmanned Vessel

This paper presents an approach to COLREGs complian t ship navigation. A system architecture is proposed, which will be implemented and tested on t wo platforms: networked bridge simulators and at

From concept to reality: Unmanned merchant ship research in Norway

Fully unmanned ships provide a very interesting opportunity to create new types of waterborne transport systems. No crew means that many ship systems can be removed and the ship can be designed

Can unmanned ships improve navigational safety

Autonomous vehicles are appearing in ever-more fields such as aviation, public transportation and the automotive sector. That’s why it is not unlikely to see the deployment of unmanned merchant ships

Risk Assessment of Autonomous Ship Systems

Various technologies for autonomous ships are being developed. As moves aimed at autonomous ships for commercial use, the EU-funded MUNIN project 1), the DNV GL ReVolt project 2) and Finland-funded

The increased use of artificial intelligent based benefits is expected to increase the operational performance of all the above aspects in the sense that an overall quality in logical and knowledge based will be consistent.

Communication architecture for an unmanned merchant ship

Communication between ship and a shore control center (SCC) is therefore critical for the unmanned ship and proper safety and security precautions are required, including sufficient redundancy and backup solutions.

Human Factors Issues in Maritime Autonomous Surface Ship Systems Development

This paper will stress the importance of Ship Handling Simulation (SHS)-based Maritime Autonomous Surface Ship (MASS) prototype development and aligns it with the IMO Guidelines on Software Quality

Characterization of autonomy in merchant ship

Autonomous ships are creating significant interest in the maritime world and the need for a more consistent definition framework is very apparent. This paper suggests building a framework based on

Autonomous merchant vessels: examination of factors that impact the effective implementation of unmanned ships

ABSTRACT Research in the design and development of fully autonomous and unmanned merchant vessels has revealed positive results and expected benefits that support their likely implementation on the
