Positioning & Obstacle Avoidance System


One problem in inland navigation and other confined spaces with dense traffic conditions is the present lack of equipment which can identify small objects, their size, course and other relevant parameters within a very short range (0-200m) around the ship which is not sufficiently covered by commercial navigation radar devices. In such a situation the skipper is forced to rely on his visual abilities which might be hampered by conditions of reduced visibility.

An international consortium, consisting of industrial companies and research institutes involved in relevant technologies from Finland, Spain, France, Austria, Germany and Greece is working on the development of a new laser based navigational aid. The final goal is to provide a reliable, efficient device for vessels acceptable to a wide market. The areas of application can be found in the entire inland navigation, short-sea shipping (especially within and in the vicinity of busy harbours) as well as in all other activities where a precise guidance of the ship is of utmost importance. The key component of the system is the laser radar, which is capable of performing all short range radar tasks with a high degree of accuracy.

Mr Branislav Zigic, VBD-European Development Centre for Inland & Coastal Navigation (Germany) will deliver a paper ‘SHICO - The Short Range Navigation Positioning & Obstacle Avoidance System’ at the fifth in the successful SURV series of international conferences on Surveillance, Pilot & Rescue Craft.
