To date, academic research on intelligent shipping has explored risks associated with navigation solutions embedded on-board ships. Consequently, much less research focus has been drawn on understanding challenges associated with the utilisation of new technologies in the fairway and the infrastructure surrounding a ship operating as an autonomous system of systems.
Intelligent fairway is a complex emerging concept and there are no standards and/or guidelines that describe considerations on risks, emerging technology features and what facilities should offer. This paper reviews some risks of relevance to remote pilotage in Rauma 12-meter conventional fairway based on industry best practices and accident statistics. It is concluded that the transformation from conventional to remote pilotage mainly relates to challenges related to de-risking and implementing technologies, as well as the need to develop modern risk management systems and unified regulations.
