This paper concerns an automatic position-adjustable elevator that realizes easy and safe passage between a workboat and a floating structure or an ocean platform. The elevator attached to the workboat is controlled so as to reduce the relative displacement between the workboat and the structures. Shown are the 3-D motion measurement by image processing technique and some successful results of model experiments.
