DECISION AIDING TECHNOLOGY AND INTEGRATED BRIDGE DESIGN

This paper provides a brief overview of maritime decision aids and integrated bridge designs, focusing on the link between the two. It describes the design of one decision aid, the Piloting Expert System, a stand-alone system capable of being integrated with existing and future bridge designs. The paper reports on the results of empirical experiments that have evaluated the contribution of stand-alone and integrated decision aids in assisting pilots and ships' officers to navigate congested waterways more safely.
