An autonomous navigation system for a ship will need to detect and classify floating objects in the vicinity of the ship which are relevant for safe navigation. This project is divided in three parts:
- Identification of which floating objects that require identification and classification according to the COLREG (International Regulation for Preventing Collisions at Sea).
- Identification of floating objects that are relevant for the safe navigation of the ship, but not defined by the COLREG.
- Identification of sensors or combination of sensors applicable for detection and classification of the identified floating objects in any relevant operating condition.
