Preliminary Results of a System-theoretic Assessment of Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships’ Safety
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
2 Aalto University, Espoo, Finland
ABSTRACT: While a system-theoretic approach to the safety analysis of innovative socio-technical systems gains a growing acceptance among academia, safety issues of Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) remain largely unexplored. Therefore, we applied a System-Theoretic Process Analysis to develop and analyze a preliminary model of the unmanned shipping system in order to elaborate safety recommendations for future developers of the actual system. Results indicate that certain advancements shall be undertaken in relation to MASS’ software solutions in particular.
