Abstract:The cruise line ship industry is a growing market in the shipping segment. With growing demand comes more and more diverse challenges. One of which is the flow of passengers on the ships. The Meyer Werft GmbH in Papenburg, Germany builds these big cruise line ships and wants to investigate the possibilities of visualizing the passenger flow. Using wireless technologies (WiFi, Bluetooth etc.), a tracking system can be developed. This data can be used to change the way the passengers experience the trip by redesigning the ship’s interior layout. The goal of this graduation project was to develop a tool that visualizes the passenger flow. The truthfulness and accuracy of the data were not important, as the development of this tool was focused on the technical aspects rather than the analytical aspects. The final visualization tool was created based on the game engine Unity3D. It combines a highly detailed 3D model of the ship, a flow map for the passenger’s movement and a line graph to compare the decks. The passenger flow visualization tool was evaluated with the help of user testing and it met the majority of the requirements. More concepts have been generated that can be part of a future iteration of this tool.
