How to design a system that will support the future operator in being aware of the situation of the assigned ships and being able to take control when an unexpected situation happens? Autonomous vessels are now being used as a safer, cheaper, and more efficient way of transit through the oceans. Despite being capable of autonomous travel, the ships will still be closely monitored by operators in Shore Control Center(SCC), who can take control in critical and difficult situations. However, when regulating and monitoring multiple autonomous vessels, it is easy to become lost in the system’s complexity and fail to identify or notice unexpected events. Through a lens of interaction design, this project aims to investigate how the operator can monitor and operate the ship from land with a complete view of their situation in order to take the appropriate action when needed. I’ll use an open innovative design approach, using the OpenBridge Design System as a starting point, and include users, OICL, other industry partners, and human factor experts to develop the project. OpenRemote Beta proposes a solution that will assist the operator in monitoring multiple autonomous ships concurrently by keeping the system transparent so that the user can understand when to take action from a shore-based control center.
