On-board Human Operators: Liabilities or Assets?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This paper analyses data from cargo ships in order to investigate how unmanned operation will impact
the ability to detect and prevent near miss incidents from developing into marine accidents. Many claim
that eliminating the presence of an on-board crew will eliminate accidents caused by human errors.
Others caution that human error may not disappear with the elimination of the crew and that new
incidents may occur because of it. The analysis finds that on-board human presence is attributable to
some errors but that it at the same time is vital for detecting and stopping the development of incidents.
