To load a RoRo vessel is a complex task and the industry has called for a system that can automate the collection of vehicle position data and register the vehicles on-board ships. Such a system would provide a faster workflow and increase safety by knowing, for example, where gas-powered or battery-powered vehicles are placed and this could also possibly improve firefighting on-board a ship. By knowing the position and vehicle data, stability of the vessel can also be optimized during loading. The goal of the study is to identify a possible concept to enable in-door positioning of vehicles and other cargo on-board RoRo-vessels.
