Abstract

Modern steering devices for ships lead to an improved control capability and allow independent actions without tugs by mates in use with modern electronics. Within the project AdaNav developed MIMO controller enables DP equivalent functions for ships being able to traverse. The following contribution shows the inclusion of such modern maneuvering quality as computer based assistance system into electronic ship guidance systems like ECDIS. To guarantee fully responsibility of mates the concept bases on introduced planning practice implementing additional waypoints and attributes.

Zusammenfassung

Moderne Manövrierorgane für Schiffe führen zur verbesserten Steuerfähigkeit und gestatten der Schiffsführung im Gebrauch mit entsprechender Elektronik selbständiges Agieren ohne Schlepper. Ein im Projekt AdaNav entwickelter MIMO Regler erlaubt DP-Funktionen für geeignete Schiffe. Der Beitrag zeigt die Einbeziehung dieser Steuereigenschaften als Assistenzwerkzeug innerhalb elektronischer Schiffsführungssysteme wie ECDIS. Um die volle Verantwortung der Schiffsführung zu garantieren baut das System auf bewährte Planungspraxis unter Einführung neuer Wegpunkte und Attribute auf.
