 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'MUNIN aims to develop an autonomous ship concept, which is described according to the Waterborne TP Agenda by combination of automated decision systems with remote control via a shore based station. The vision of MUNIN is to show the update possibilities of today’s fleet to autonomous vessel.

The trend in maritime transport towards slow steaming increase the necessary total number of ships, while at the same time the lack of seafarers becomes urgent more and more. Human resources are seen as one of the critical enablers for maritime growth within the EU. MUNIN’s concept allows handling this challenge due to more efficient and competitive ship operation. Additionally, Tthe shore based approach offers 'seafaring' furthermore the possibility to become further socially sustainable.

MUNIN’s results will also provide efficiency, safety and sustainability advantages for existing vessels in short term, without necessitating the use of autonomous ships. This includes e.g. environmental optimization, new maintenance and operational concepts as well as improved bridge applications. Furthermore autonomous ship-models could be an improvement for education purpose in ship simulators.

For an autonomous ship several tasks which are currently done on board have to be redesigned. These are e.g. navigation, manoeuvring, watch keeping, maintenance, repair and engine optimization. Based on as-is-analyses MUNIN will define necessary change demands for manned vessels and develop concepts and applications to enable and optimize navigation and operation of an autonomous ship, which includes an evaluation of the communication architecture. Technical as well as organizational and legal aspects of unmanned shipping will be taken into account.

Feasibility of the proposed concepts will be verified by an integrated simulator setup. Furthermore an assessment in terms of cost-benefit as well as safety and liability aspects will be done. MUNIN will embed itself in IMO’s eNavigation- and EU’s eMaritime-Initiative.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

An EU team is developing an idea for unmanned shipping. The proposal involves designs for various modular on-board systems for ship control, sensing and communication, plus onshore stations.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

For environmental reasons, oceanic cargo ships are travelling more slowly, thus increasing the ship population; simultaneously, numbers of available mariners are declining. The solution may lie in partially autonomous cargo vessels, which also offer commercial and environmental advantages.

The EU-funded http://www.unmanned-ship.org (MUNIN) (Maritime unmanned navigation through intelligence in networks) project aims to develop a technical concept for such ships and assess its feasibility. The project concept addresses the vision paper prepared by Waterborne TP, a European consortium, which specified the various necessary modular control, communication and decision-support systems. MUNIN involves eight partners and runs between September 2012 and August 2015.

First reporting period results consisted mainly of technically defining the subsystems, including both on-board and onshore modules. The list includes an advanced sensor module, autonomous navigation system, autonomous engine and monitoring control system, and a shore control centre. Together, the units will provide all the information needed to control a ship during the deep-sea part of its voyage. The systems are not intended for use in harbours or congested shipping lanes.

In addition, the consortium has defined the various technologies needed to assist on-shore staff. The shore control centre operator monitors the status of several autonomous ships. Additionally, an engineer assists the operator and devises maintenance plans for the vessels. A control centre situation room team has the capacity to take control of a single ship, using a replica bridge and remote manoeuvring support system.

Researchers laid the groundwork for a prototype implementation phase scheduled to begin during the second reporting period.

The MUNIN project has defined the technical systems needed to implement the Waterborne TP concept for autonomous shipping. The development should yield cost savings, while avoiding the problems of mariners being at sea for long periods.
