After difficult times for research and industry and a period of online conferences, The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology was very excited to launch the call for papers for International Ship Control Systems Symposium 2022 (iSCSS 2022), which they aimed to organize at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.

Their theme for 2022 was ‘human machine teaming in ship control’, which strives to get the best out of collaboration between the human and control systems.

While the complexity of operations at sea continue to increase, society demands maritime operations to be intelligent, sustainable, and safe, both for naval and commercial operations. To achieve these goals, we need to grasp the opportunity novel technologies like autonomous systems and artificial intelligence provide, while ensuring we involve the human when needed, in design and in operation of control systems.

MOSES project was represented by MARIN colleagues, who submitted and presented a paper entitled “Autonomous docking of a feeder vessel“. The presentation was delivered by Bas J. de Kruif.
