Towards a web-based application
The simulations include environment effects such as ocean currents, wind and waves. These environment factors are obtained
from weather databases. Apart from their direct influence on motions, SafeTrans features a Captain’s Decision Mimic (CDM),
which resembles the behaviour of captains, including their decisions about the best way to operate safely and maintain the operation planning. The CDM uses weather forecast data to choose an alternative route or to seek shelter at a port close to the route. Additionally, the CDM can decide to reduce engine settings in case motions become too strong.
