Shore-based pilotage: Pilot or autopilot? Piloting as a control problem
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2009

Remote, or shore-based, pilotage is an issue of some interest to the maritime community. When discussed, it is often in the context of new technology that in one way or the other is supposed to enhance piloting and enable ships to be piloted from the shore. This paper takes a different approach and instead looks at piloting as control of a complex system. Such an approach makes it possible to identify a fundamental problem with remote pilotage. The problem, along with possible solutions, is presented and discussed.
