From September 1st to 3rd, the MUNIN project consortium gathered at the Maritime Simulation Centre Warnemünde (MSCW) for a very first holistic system prototype test (see photo). Connecting three Shiphandling Simulators from the partners Hochschule Wismar and Fraunhofer CML in Hamburg, eight test scenarios were conducted to evaluate the current state of the prototype systems. This shall be used at a later stage to validate MUNIN’s concept for an unmanned and autonomous dry bulk carrier. Even though it became obvious that a lot of work still lies ahead, valuable conclusions could be drawn for the further system development. A 2nd Simulation Test Round at MSCW is scheduled for the third week of February 2015.
