Ferngesteuerte Binnenschifffahrt : Konzept und Lösungsansatz im Kontext vernetzter Mobilität

Vor dem Hintergrund derzeitiger Herausforderungen in der Binnenschifffahrt, wie dem Mangel an nautischem Personal und dem Güterstruktureffekt, bedarf es an innovativen und zukunftsorientierten Konzepten. Eine vielversprechende Lösung stellt die Fernsteuerung von Schiffen dar. Dabei wird das Schiff von einem Fernsteuerstand an Land gestuert. Insbesondere im Kontext der Automatisierung und Vernetzung bietet die Fernsteuerung nicht nur ökologische und ökonomische Potentiale, sondern eröffnet auch neue Vertriebswege.

Remote-controlled, interconnected and automated inland navigation offers great potential to positively influence safety, economy and ecology. Moreover, it represents a suitable response to the current challenges of the industry. The increasing development of modern broadband communication and decreasing costs for modern and high-resolution sensor technologies open up new ways of mobility solutions in inland navigation. Such ‘smart ships’ can not only counteract the current shortage of personnel in the industry, but also operate more fuel-efficiently and ecologically. In particular, reduced personnel costs can make inland vessels with small freight volumes profitable. In this way, new distribution channels can be developed or existing distribution channels can be shifted from the road to inland waterways. In contrast to the road, which is increasingly closer to reaching its capacity limits, inland waterways offer further unused transport capacity. On the way to a fully automated ship, remote control represents a key solution that makes automation profitable at an early stage. Furthermore, the possibility of remote intervention contributes to safety and the public acceptance of unmanned vessels.
