An Intelligent Operator Support System for Dynamic Positioning

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 599)


This paper proposes a human-centered approach to Dynamic Positioning systems which combines multiple technologies in an intelligent operator support system (IOSS). IOSS allows the operator to be roaming and do other tasks in quiet conditions. When conditions become more demanding, the IOSS calls the operator to return to his bridge position. In particular, attention is paid to human factors issues such as trust misalignment, and context-aware interfaces.
