This study integrates strategic decisions and operational control systems in autonomous shipping. By providing ships with situational information and adding a virtual operator, we show that vessels can make informed choices regarding their route and engine settings. To demonstrate this integration, we developed new components that were tested in...

This article analyses current developments in Autonomous Shipping (MASS) by adopting a socio-technical system perspective to explain why the technology is (still) only applied in small-scale niche applications and still not applied on a large scale. Using literature study and an exploratory research approach to obtain in-depth information...

Autonomous submerged dredging offers numerous benefits, such as reduced ship resistance and lower vacuum requirements for the dredge pumps. However, this method also presents new challenges, such as stability and buoyancy control, which must be addressed to minimize the energy requirements and ensure cost-effectiveness and sustainability. To...

Due to the expected increase in coastal replenishment along the Dutch coastline, and the need to decrease pollutant emissions in the Netherlands and worldwide, the Autonomous Low Energy Replenishment Dredger (ALERD) is developed. The ALERD is a sustainable and cost-effective solution to perform coastal replenishment work along the Dutch...

The research effort into unmanned and autonomous ships has increased significantly over the last decade. Although not all required technology is currently commercially available, consensus is that from a technical standpoint, unmanned shipping is possible. The next question is: is it economically feasible to operate an unmanned ship. The...

Kooij, C. (author)
Unmanned and low-manned transport has increasingly been studied this past decade. While there have been successful trials for autonomous navigation, unmanned cargo ships are not commercially available yet. First, this dissertation investigates how changes to a ship’s systems and organizational structure can affect the crew’s size and composition...

Nijdam, Anna-Louise (author)
Autonomous vessels carry the potential to increase the profitability of shipping companies. It is believed that an autonomous vessel design operates more efficient compared to a manned design. In this thesis the challenges of autonomous shipping and its consequences on ship design and the operation are identified. This information is used to...

Autonomous and unmanned shipping are currently hot topics in the maritime industry. However, there are many different views on how the ultimate goal of an unmanned, autonomous ship will be reached. On any given ship, a large range of tasks is performed every day, each of which need to be replaced in such a way that no human presence is...

The advent of autonomous ships that are unmanned or low-manned will reduce the number of people at risk at sea. Even when autonomous navigation does not reduce the number of accidents, this means that safety at sea will increase. In fact, increased safety is one of the primary perceived drivers for autonomous shipping, although this safety...

In this research, a hybrid approach for path planning of autonomous ships that generates both global and local paths, respectively, is proposed. The global path is obtained via an improved artificial potential field (APF) method, which makes up for the shortcoming that the typical APF method easily falls into a local minimum. A modified...

While successful trials for autonomously navigating ships have been conducted, commercially available unmanned cargo ships are currently unavailable. However, there are many solutions available that will allow for low-manned ship concepts long before fully unmanned ships are possible. There are many drivers for low-manned and unmanned...

Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships have received a significant amount of attention in recent projects. They promise a reduction in marine accidents and mitigation of human errors. Most of the ongoing research effort is directed toward autonomous navigation and cybersecurity. However, the importance of a machinery plant in the engine room that...

Recently, autonomous ships have gotten a lot more attention both in the media and in research. However, very little research has focussed on the effects of automation on the size of the crew. This paper analyses the effects of added automation on the required size and composition of the crew on a 750 TEU short sea container vessel. A Crew...

The future autonomous ships will be operating in an environment where different autonomous and non-autonomous vessels with different characteristics exist. These vessels are owned by different parties and each uses its owned unique approaches for guidance and navigation. The Collaborative Autonomous Shipping Experiment (CASE) aims at...

In recent years, a significant amount of research has been conducted on autonomous ships. Since it is assumed that these ships will sail with a significantly reduced crew or even without people on board, the design of the ship needs reconsideration. The absence of people on board and the associated safety measures could result in a more...

In this research, a hybrid approach for global path planning for Maritime Autonomous Surface Ship (MASS) is proposed, which generates the shortest path considering the collision risk and the proximity between path and obstacles. The collision risk concerning obstacles is obtained using Time-Varying Collision Risk (TCR) concept, taking into...

In the last few years, autonomous shipping has been under extensive consideration by academic and industrial communities as well as governmental organizations due to several potential advantages that it introduces. Furthermore, due to the drastic environmental consequences of transport overwater, international organizations have enforced the...

The research effort on autonomous ships has increased over the last years. The realisation of these ships will have as a consequence that the crew can be reduced significantly or even be removed entirely, resulting in unmanned ships. Although there is a strong belief that unmanned ships would lead to more economic efficiency, only limited...
