WP 10000 [DST]

Testing and validation of the requirements as well as final demonstration

As soon as the remote control works reliably in the simulation, field testing takes place. The test runs are always accompanied by a qualified crew. The skipper on board retains responsibility for the ship. He has the possibility to take control at any time and to safely switch off the remote control. During the testing phase, the skipper also has the responsibility for lowering the wheelhouse on board.

Field testing follows the plan developed at the beginning in AP 2100. Basically, the complexity of the testing is gradually increased. Without anticipating the elaboration in AP 2100, the following steps can already be outlined: Testing of the data link in the entire test field, testing of direct control, testing of control with increasing use of assistance systems, and finally testing of failure scenarios.

In the final demonstrations (or acceptance tests), all functions and properties defined at the start of the project must be demonstrated.
