MARINE TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS: A PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEM
This paper discusses some of the psychological problems that require solution if human controllers are to be employed in an effective marine traffic control system. Close parallels exist between the problems raised in the marine traffic context and problems investigated in other fields of human activity, notably in air traffic control and in industrial process control. Some of the more directly relevant literature on work done in these areas is listed.
