Abstract

In June 2015, the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Maritime Safety Committee approved a “Guideline on Software Quality Assurance and Human-Centred Design (HCD) for e-Navigation”. This was a tangible result of work done in a number of e-Navigation related EU projects from 2009 and up until today. “e-Navigation” is a concept launched by the IMO to harmonize “the collection, integration, exchange, presentation and analysis of marine information onboard and ashore by electronic means to enhance berth to berth navigation and related services for safety and security at sea and protection of the marine environment”. This new concept has spurred many new projects looking on innovative solutions to accidents in the maritime domain. This paper will summarise some of the new tools developed in a number of e-Navigation related EU projects. However, the focus will be on the maritime HCD methods used.
