Development of a situation-responsive monitoring and assistance system

Based on the model created in AP 5400, predictions for expected as well as possible/logical activities are generated and evaluated in combination with the overall system model vector. Depending on the overall complexity, routines for the situational assessment of the overall situation are developed, which determine both current risks, action intentions (primarily of the considered captain) and action goals in an automated way. In combination with the options for action (situation-specific action space), options for alternative actions can also be determined in an automated manner, which can provide the basis for part decoupling for ship driving or for taking over ship driving [1,2,3]. The resulting difference between “This would be the right behavioral strategy” and “The taken action leads to an unacceptable risk or contains an increased risk” etc.  [2] allows many options to determine assistance functionality on the action level (in the sense of workflow management or emergency functionality).
