Preparing for an Unknown Future. Autonomous Ships Versus Position of the Maritime English/IMO Standard Marine Communication Phrases(ME / IMO SMCPs) in Maritime Practice. How Are We Going to Solve this Problem?
ABSTRACT: The reason for modern Maritime Education and Training (MET) is to provide students with the necessary skills, and knowledge to be successful in the future outside of school. Futuristic teachers need to help students become life-long learners who are ready, organized, and equipped for new challenges. This paper tries to find position of Maritime English/IMO Standard Marine Communication Phrases (ME/ IMO SMCPs) versus autonomous ships, to facilitate developments in a safe predictable environment and for ensuring safe navigation in the future, also in a mixed traffic situation where both manned and unmanned ships will be sailing on the same routes and ports. In its attempts, this paper tries to analyse the Obstacles and Disadvantages when no crew is required on board; this could jeopardize the statute of seafarers, and not every aspect of unmanned shipping is all roses. The work is much future oriented and requires challenging conventional concepts and operations.
