    Electronic controls

    Hi everybody:
    A year ago, my company recives a brand new cruising passengers ship, 1700 passengers capability. As usually, a testing creew was sent to the ships yard for receiving and testing the boat. We were engaged almost 3 months in that busines before setting the ship in service line. The whole ship has computer assisted controls, electronic sensors, automated safety systems ¡¡¡ She looks like the Entherprise spaceship. Was completly espectacular. But ..... we had, in the first two months of truly work of her, two blackouts. She sweetches ALL systems OFF by herself. We got not under command, with no main engines and no emergency systems, two times in two months. The second time, we had to ask for tug boats 50 miles away from the Canary Islands. Fortunately weather was fine. The end of the story is that all automated controls were substituted by classical controls, and that our particular main control computer (We named it HAL-9000 ) was only able to assist but not to control anything.

    Note: Finnaly we found where was the problem, but that's another story.

    I don't trust in computers for critical decissions when the responsability is mine.

    Best regards

    Well, I'll have to tell my friends in Barreras to take more care of the systems aboard...! ;)

    (Note: I use to attend most of the Barreras launchings, so maybe we can even have met -without knowing- there).

    Cheers
