The automation of inland vessels must also be considered economically. This consideration takes place within an economic efficiency analysis, which must also be evaluated.
To test the test vessel, test scenarios are first defined. Subsequently, the automated vessel control is integrated and iteratively adapted. Test runs are absolutely necessary for this.
The realization of the automation of the test vessel requires a fine conception and coordination of the algorithms. Furthermore, the automation functions must be tested in advance in the simulation environment. This is followed by validation on the real system.
Fine conception and tuning of the algorithms for the automation of the inland vessel.
Technical implementation of the automation functions
Integration of automated ship guidance in the simulation environment
Validation of the AI
Sensors and actuators will be used to equip the test vessel. A human-machine interface is also being developed.
Integration and Adaptation of Control in Test Vessel
From theory to practice
The simulation environment as a virtual image of the real world is the central development environment for all control and monitoring algorithms. A digital twin of the test vessel is implemented in the simulation environment.
