Abstract


No evidence-based vision test for selecting bridge crew considers the realistic, demanding vision requirements at sea. This may be the cause of serious accidents. A proposal is outlined for development of a test that recreate the visually demanding conditions at sea with video that provides 3D images of objects to be observed.
