STEERING CONTROLS FOR A ONE-MAN BRIDGE

Designing a one-man bridge appears to be a complex job that involves a new set of human and technical considerations. Layout and instrumentation, and specifically the design of steering control systems, are important among these considerations and are discussed by the author. The three figures that illustrate the text show the layout of the control system for the twin rudders of two new Carnival cruise liners; an example of an illuminated overhead panel; and a diagram of the simple and basic control hierarchy for steering gear systems that is preferred by many system suppliers.
