A multi-scenario simulation transport model to assess the economics of semi-autonomous platooning concepts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The Vessel Train (VT) concept, aims to increase the level of autonomy of ships in order to develop a competitive low-manned waterborne transport concept. A transport model has been developed to determine the concept’s performance. In this paper, that model is used to assess the impact of the concept for the lead vessel on the overall performance of the VT. If one knows the cost of the Lead Vessel, the required benefit for the follower vessels can be determined. The model uses multiple scenario simulation to gather data for a sensitivity study of the LV features. The insights gained into the behavioural properties of the VT leads to recommendations on boundary conditions for a profitable implementation of the VT.
