Only until recently, the maritime domain has started to adopt advanced, highlyautomated assistance systems to support mariners in safety-critical navigation tasks. In this domain, the Use Case elaborates new, advanced simulation and testing approaches by an extensive exchange and use of proven as well as newly elaborated approaches in the ENABLE- S3 project, especially from the automotive domain. The result of the Maritime Use Case will be a comprehensive description of the system under test (SUT) and the requirements for the V&V platform. The impact  of this ENABLE-S3 Use Case will be to speed up the development of advanced  virtual and physical testing, simulation, and type approval approaches for highly automated navigation systems  to reduce time to market for European e-Navigation (short: e-NAV) providers, thereby increasing the competiveness of the European maritime industry.

The goal of this demonstrator is to test the quality of the system under test and the Maritime Co-Simulation. In the next step, a scenario based V&V approach of remote guidance functions of  the Maritime Co-Simulator and Shore Based Bridge (SBB) is tested for crew reduced vessels/unmanned vessels, comprising 6 scenarios:

  1. Passage Planning and Deployment
  2. Passage Monitoring
  3. Reaction to monitoring information
  4. Acknowledgement on board
  5. Remote vessel guidance
  6. “Fail-safe” and “fail-operational”

This demonstrator consists of a video showing the “Shore Based Bridge” operating a real test vessel and a live demo of a simulated data exchange Vessel to “Shore Based Bridge”  via Satellite connection; a simulation will be achieved by using NMEA simulator, satellite emulator and SBB.
