In the past decade, significant effort has gone ino planning and executing full-scale sea trials in an attempt to improve, calibrate and validate existing computer models that simulate evacuation on passenger ships. In September, 2009 two assembly exercises were conducted at sea onboard the RO-PAX ferry SuperSpeed 1 by team members of the EU -funded project SAFEGUARD. The exercises were conductd with passengers during routine sailing between the ports of Kristiaansand, Norway and Hirtshals, Denmark. Between both trials, a total of 1,769 passengers were assembled; on day one, 902 passengers and on day two 867 passengers. As part of the data collection exercise, passenger response time was collected using video cameras and passenger movement was collected using a novel infra-red (IR) based position logging system. This paper briefly describes the development and testing of the data acquisition system and discusses prelimary results.
