Abstract

This paper discusses the concept and results of the MAXCMAS project, an approach to COLREGs compliance for autonomous ship navigation. In addition to desktop testing, the system is being implemented and tested thoroughly on networked bridge simulators as well as on an unmanned surface vessel. Both bridge simulation-based and desktop-based results exhibit suitable collision avoidance actions in a one-on-one and multivessel ship encounters respectively. The eventual aim of the project is to demonstrate an advanced autonomous ship navigation concept and bring it to a higher technology readiness level, closer to market.
