    Abstract

    The emergence of new autonomous technologies in shipping brings along modified and new risks and potential hazards, as well as needs for changes in controlling the risks to ensure safe operation. To demonstrate that credible evidence of risk controls is produced, and to acquire permissions from the approving authorities to test, and finally to routinely operate autonomous vessels at sea, a robust safety qualification process is required. In the presented method, the demonstration of safety is visualized with a goal based model using Goal Structuring Notation (GSN) argumentation language to clarify the relation between specified safety goals and the existing safety evidence.
