Remote Monitoring of Autonomous Ships: Quickly Getting into the Loop Display (QGILD)
Authors: Thomas Porathe
Abstract: Operators in Remote Operation Centers (ROC) of future Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) are to be faced with the challenge of quickly getting into the loop when ships they monitor, after long periods of perfectly working automation, suddenly needs remote assistance. The question of Human-In-The-Loop (HITL) or Human-Out-Of-The-Loop (HOOTL) will become crustal in future development of automation towards autonomy in unmanned ships. The goal of this study is to build Automation Transparency into the human-machine interface of remote operation centers. This work-in-process paper presents some early concepts on a Quickly Getting Into the Loop Display designed to do just that.
Keywords: Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS), autonomous ships, Remote Operation Centres (ROC), QGILD
