Positive outcome of the test of entirely independent navigation and to realized remote control from Rolls-Royce and Finferries

Employed the ferry "Falco" with on board 80 hosts

Today Rolls-Royce and Finferries have announced to have carried out with success the first test to the world of navigation to entirely independent control and remote control that is lead in the archipelago to south of the city of Turku, in Finland. The gone travel of travel of from Parainen to Nauvo of the Falco ferry of the company of Finnish navigation, with on board 80 hosts, in fact has happened in completely independent modality, while the return travel has happened in modality to remote control.

The British group and the Finnish company have specified that in the course of the experimentation, happened in the within of project SVAN (Safer Vessel with Autonomous Navigation) that it is I keep on the research project Advanced Autonomous Waterborne Applications (AAWA), navigation, that entirely is carried out without crew, is guided through the location of objects through I use it of techniques of "sensor fusion" for the collection and combination of coming data from various sensors, and with systems of artificial intelligence and systems anticollision. Moreover the mooring procedures are realized with the employment of a system of independent navigation recently development.

For the experimentation the Falco ferry is equipped of a series of advance sensors that allow to construct an image of the detailed surrounding atmosphere, in real time and with a level of advanced accuracy to that of the human eye. This image is sent to the command post of remote control of the Finferries to Turku, situated to about 50 kilometers of distance from the resort in which the experimentation has happened, where a commander has monitored the phases of navigation and, if necessary, it could have taken the control of the ship, that it is long 53,8 meters.
