Autonomous navigation of an unmanned surface vessel

Samenvatting

The Port of Amsterdam faces a number of issues concerning the level of monitoring and control in the port. These issues mainly arise from the fact that inland shipping vessels are not required to carry AIS which makes it difficult to determine the identity of the vessels in the port, the position of these vessels and whether the vessels obey the rules imposed by the port of Amsterdam. In addition to this there is no obligation to report to the Port of Amsterdam. To solve the problem the following hypothesis has been developed: Can the level of monitoring and control on inland shipping vessels in the port of Amsterdam be improved by developing a navigation module, allowing for efficient and safe navigation of an autonomous unmanned surface vessel in the port of Amsterdam. From desktop research it was concluded that the technology for efficient and safe navigation was already available, but that the context in which the USV was applied offered possibilities to enhance waypoint navigation techniques. A simulation program has been developed to test the hypothesis that prioritized events would enhance the navigation and inspection process. Based on the results from the experiments the conclusion is that priority based port area selection does not improve the inspection efficiency in the port of Amsterdam.
