Put through its paces

In this part, the control station is put through its paces. First, hardware and software are tested in suitable simulated scenarios, making sure that they are as close as possible to the actual test and operational environment. This includes, among other things, 3D environmental simulation with static (waterways, shore areas, vegetation, landmarks) and dynamic objects (other ships, changing light signals, moving buoyage, etc.). In addition, the behavior of the own ship is also represented realistically (dynamics, on-board systems, etc.). The control system is tested by experienced trained skippers and continuously accompanied and evaluated by a suitable investigation concept. Through successive series of tests, regular operation can be investigated and analyzed and iteratively optimized in its implementation as remote-controlled inland navigation. Emergency procedures are also part of the simulative investigations. Subsequently, simulated modules are successively exchanged for their real implementation. This makes module tests possible in a simple way and under constant and controllable environmental conditions. In particular, the communication interface can be subjected to a longer test procedure in this way. Testing of the overall system, without simulated modules, will also be carried out later as part of the overall system analysis (WP 10500).
