    Abstract

    Autonomous and remote controlled technologies in shipping are becoming a reality with the rapid advances in communication technology, sensor systems, and navigational decision-making software. The emergence of the new autonomous technologies brings along modified and new risks and potential hazards, as well as needs for changes in predicting and controlling the risks to ensure safe operation. In this paper, we present a safety qualification process using a goal based safety case approach that we have specified and applied to facilitate qualification of an autonomous ship prototype for a series of proof-of-concept demonstration trials at sea. As a case example, the goal-based methodology is applied on the situational awareness system of a proposed autonomous vessel prototype.
