Invitation

The technological realization for operating Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) system is close to becoming a reality. To accept this new technology, IMO started the Regulatory Scoping Exercise (RSE) for MASS at the 99th session of MSC in 2018, and this work was completed at the 102nd session of MSC in 2020. Among various results of RSE, here are the key issues of the MASS RSE (CHAE, 2020):

  • 1. 
    Clear understanding of the Seafarer’s task on a vessel under the current IMO instruments;
  • 2. 
    Clear Identification whether seafarers onboard or not depend on level of autonomy of MASS, and clear classification of seafarers or personnel responsibilities for their tasks onboard; and
  • 3. 
    Accordingly, it is required to establish new standards for the definition of Seafarer, and clear division of role and responsibilities of staffs, remote operators, and the captain etc.

Clearly, the research and development of various technologies related to MASS should be mainly focused on Human Factors. Therefore, the researches related to these following subjects should be conducted with a higher priority: Understanding the relations between MASS system and its operators, identifying safety issues within the system, consideration of labor factors while designing the MASS system, and application of simulation in MASS.

At this crucial time, KIMFT, together with the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, would like to host the Ergoship 2021 to present the results of research related to MASS and Human Factors. We look forward to the participation of researchers & scholars at Ergoship 2021 who are making meaningful contributions to MASS in various fields.

Thank you.
