Description/Abstract

The Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) has proved a valuable tool for maritime accident and incident investigation over the last 20 years. New applications, functionalities and proposals for specifications and standards were examined based upon industry survey and expert view, published reports, and likely impact of changes in technology. A high proportion of incidents are attributed to human error; many of the changes proposed here are intended to support investigators in understanding crew perception of situations. It was found that regular automated analysis of VDR records by operators could yield safety and financial benefits.
