ESR 4 – Protocols for communication between autonomous vessels themselves and autonomous vessels and traffic control

Host institution: NTNU (NO)
Project title/WP: Protocols for communication between autonomous vessels themselves and autonomous vessels and traffic control (WP1)
Supervisory board:
Objectives:

  • Increased safety and efficiency of autonomous inland shipping by contributing with effective protocols
  • Effective exchange of navigation data, mission plans, and other critical information between autonomous ships, conventional vessels and traffic management systems

Expected Results:

  • New protocols that are validated against traffic rule compliance, safety and traffic efficiency when used in autonomous ship control to avoid collision and control traffic
  • New protocols that support machine-to-machine communication, machine-to-human and human-to-human interaction

Planned secondment(s):

  • KM (NO): Development of requirements and specifications (M12-14, secondment mentor: K. Solberg)
  • TU Delft (NL): Design and analysis of protocols by simulations of formulation and solution of optimal traffic control problems utilizing data from the protocols (M26-28, secondment mentor: R.R. Negenborn)

Enrolment in the Doctoral degree: NTNU (NO)
