Leading Classification Society ClassNK has released its “Guidelines for Automated/Autonomous Operation of ships ~Design development, Installation and Operation of Automated Operation Systems/Remote Operation Systems~”, ClassNK said in its release. In the field of ships, research and development of technology related to maritime autonomous surface ships (MASS) has been actively carried out with the aim of improving safety by preventing human error and improving working conditions by reducing the work load on crew members, and demonstration experiments are being carried out on a global scale.

It is expected that the design and development of technology related to MASS will be performed in various forms and concepts. The direction of the developments can be roughly divided into the following two ways: design and development aiming to lessen the number of crew members onboard unmanned ships or comparatively small ships with limited short navigation routes, and design and development for partial automation of onboard tasks or remote support, mainly with the purpose of supporting the onboard operation of crew members.

Considering the current situation in which design and developments of technology related to MASS are expected to be carried out based on various concepts, ClassNK issued its “Guidelines for Concept Design of Automated Operation/Autonomous Operation of Ships (Provisional Version)” in 2018.
