Engineer-Centred Design Factors and Methodological Approach for Maritime Autonomy Emergency Response Systems
This paper was one of outputs from the BOAUT project, in which we investigated assurance related to maritime autonomous surface vessels (MASS). Specifically, we interviewed and put vessel traffic services operators through simulated scenarios to get their input regarding future challenges and changes required for maritime autonomy emergency response systems to function properly. The main take-away was was the need for engineering firms to improve their informal gathering and sharing of information through gatekeepers and/or organisational liaisons. To avoid a too cautious approach to accountability, this will have to include a closer integration of development and operations.
