A Critical Analysis of IMO S-Mode Guidelines
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: Circular on “Guidelines for the Standardization of User Interface Design for Navigation Equipment”, commonly known as “S-Mode Guidelines”, has lately been approved by International Maritime Organisation. Its potential impact on default and common user settings of radar equipment, electronic chart display & information system, and integrated navigation system has been discussed in the article. Several issues that should be considered during technical implementation of the circular provisions and follow-up familiarization of navigators with the affected equipment have been identified.
