CASCADe-model-based Co-operative and Adaptive Ship-based Context Aware Design

“The ability of ship's personnel to co-ordinate activities and communicate effectively with each other is vital during emergency situations. During routine sea passages or port approaches the bridge team personnel must also work as an effective team.” 

Development of bridge workstations, displays and controls on the one hand and procedures on the other hand is characterized by being non-harmonious: 
 equipment from different manufacturers is combined within ad-hoc bespoke environments, 
 existing standards and guidelines are unspecific and ambiguous, 
 disconnect between guidelines for system design and the guidelines for procedure design, 
 bridge design should involve cognitive capacities of humans and nature of the tasks at hand 
 Near misses, groundings and collisions are still commonplace

Improve safety of maritime transport through: 
 bridge system that considers human errors by increasing cooperation between crew and machines on the bridge 
 human-centred design methodology supporting analysis of crew performance at early development stages
