Abstract

This paper discusses the concept and results of the MAXMAS 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 one - to - one and multi-vessel ship encounters respectively. The eventual aim of the project is to demonstrate an autonomous ship navigation concept and bring it to a higher technology readiness level, closer to the market.
