DESSERT - Decision support system for green and safe ship routing
Funded by: Croatian science foundation - P-2018-01-3739
The goal of the research in a frame of project DEcision Support System for green and safE ship RouTing – DESSERT is the development of an effective Decision Support System (DSS) is planned for ship captains as well as machine commanders, which would contribute to "greener"; and safer navigation of ships. The ultimate impact of such a DSS would be to make human error as small as possible, or to provide responsible persons on board the most credible data and guidance during navigation to reduce environmental pollution and make people and cargo safer.
Research related to the development of DSS will take place in two main directions: energy-efficient navigation along with reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; and increase sailing safety by collision avoidance as well as from timely reactions in the event of flooding.
The objective is to develop decision support system on board taking into accounts the environmental issue, creating a so called safe and eco-efficient or "green" ship. The project team consists of the scientists who are experts in the naval architecture, mechanical engineering, marine engineering field and computational sciences which allow solving this problem multidisciplinary.
