NIGHTMARE WORLD OF THE ONE MAN BRIDGE OPERATION

Theoretically, the technology to operate ships round the clock with a single watchkeeper already exists. This article is written from a viewpoint of strong opposition to one-man bridge operation (OMBO). It poses three questions that should be addressed before OMBO is even contemplated. These are: whether OMBO is really safe; whether it is economically justifiable; and whether it is socially desirable. Reasons are given why all three questions should be answered in the negative.
