Development of Telexistence on a Ship by Using Satellite Communication

Nowadays shipping industry has problems such as reduction of mariners, aging of mariners, and labor expenses. To solve the problems, One Person Bridge Operation was developed as navigation supporting system. However, One Person Bridge Operation remained technological problems and one man error. Therefore, in this study, telexistence on a ship was proposed by using satellite communication. Telexistence on a ship is a concept of maneuvering between land and ship with at least two mariners such as navigation officer and helmsman. Navigation officer works on ship as usual and helmsman supports ship from land. In this paper, remote maneuvering system was developed as the first step of telexistence on a ship. For evaluating the effectiveness, ship experiment was carried out. From the result, navigation officer and helmsman could alter ship’s course to 20 degrees within 60 seconds and less than 5% overshoot in the proposed remote maneuvering system.
