Project title: Communication and Cybersecurity for autonomous passenger ferry
Project description: Autonomous ferries face many cyber risks due to their dependence on digital solutions for control; increased integration of control systems; increased connectivity of the on-board control systems to on-shore monitoring systems; and the accessibility of such systems. Hence, a comprehensive approach combining cyber and physical security solutions to protect the autonomous ship ecosystem is needed by developing an Integrated Security, Safety and Ship Management System (IS3MS). Developing such a platform gives rise to several research challenges to be pursued, relating to systemic risk management; prevention by design; monitoring and detection; and response and mitigation of cyber-physical threats. Since a secure and reliable communication system between the vessel, a remote-control center and other vessels is essential to the security of the autonomous ship ecosystem, emphasis will be given to the communication and navigation systems of the autonomous ferry.
