Sea Ferries Passage Advantages

Crossing ferry routes and coastal vessel tracks are very often in contradiction regarding the sailing conditions. Collision avoidance tasks influenced by the passage schedule and fuel saving aspects are to solve from the ferry bridge crews after leaving the port. The navigators have to find out within the task triangle “collision avoidance”, “time schedule constancy” and “fuel consumption minimizing” the best or a satisfying solution for every sea passage. But often dense traffic situations may very quickly cause high level and complex questionnaires in this triangle.

The navigators have to find out in the triangle of the processes “collision avoidance”, “Saving the time schedule” and “Minimizing fuel consumption” the best or a satisfying solution for every sea passage. Dense traffic situations generate often very quickly high complex questionnaires in the triangle. The answers are to find in a short time. For finding out really the best solution in such cases a technical assistance would be helpful the captain’s experience reflects.

Especially the effects of dense transit traffic and ferry’s time schedule in different correlations are focused in the R&D project “Strategische Routenplanung”. The project is cooperation between the MARSIG Company Rostock, the DLR Neustrelitz and the SIW at the Wismar University.
