Opinion How OpenBridge seeks to improve maritime workplaces
by Dr. Kjetil Nordby Institute of Design - The Oslo School of Architecture and Design - published on 6 May 2020
Lack of standard user interfaces across bridge equipment is a major concern for maritime safety. Pilots are in a unique position, as they are constantly exposed to new and differing bridge working environments, equipment, interface designs and combinations of systems. As pilots face this problem throughout every shift they need to put in considerable effort to adjust their work to the many user interfaces they meet.

Video AIS track of MILANO BRIDGE on 6 April 2020 (Busan port)
According to AIS past track data, the vessel was obviously too fast on 9 knots and also going down the wind (4-5 bft., take a look at the exhaust from the stack) when entered the inner harbour considering the size and displacement. That speed was approximate 3 ship lengths to the pier and there was the on pier wind after the turn.
Why the ship entered the port so fast will be the subject of the investigations to be awaited.
Knowing South Korea procedures there will be no just marine accident but also a criminal investigation into the accident.
Luckily no human serious casualties occurred.
