Abstract:
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.

Opinion New article by The Standard Club: "Remote pilotage - perspective and risks to consider"

by Marine-Pilots.com - published on 8 June 2020

Published on 5th June 2020. Author Capt. John Dolan says: "We would not recommend remote pilotage when the ship is berthing or unberthing. These operations require the presence and advice of an experienced pilot who has extensive local knowledge and who is usually assisted by port tugs."
