This paper describes the principal reasons for the fitting of control and supervisory equipment in modern ships. Inevitably when such systems are fitted the question of ship safety is raised. In the bridge and cargo handling areas there are indications that the operational tasks are more difficult than hitherto. This has created a need for supervisory equipment to assist the man in decision making. Equipment currently available is described.
