NYK Group research subsidiary MTI Co. Ltd. has become the first Asian member of One Sea, an industry alliance aiming to realize autonomous ships. By actively participating in the discussion on international standards, the NYK Group aims to realize ”manned autonomous ships” that further improve safety.
Launched in Finland, One Sea is an international alliance that leads the world in the field of autonomous ships. The work began in 2016, and the aim is to create an environment suitable for autonomous ships by 2025 through discussion and the development of a roadmap, international rules, and technology standards. The alliance now comprises nine corporate members, including big European manufacturers leading autonomous ship technology development.
In its pursuit of safer operations and a reduction in crew workloads, the NYK Group has been conducting research and development, and demonstration projects on ship automation. Participating in One Sea enhances these initiatives and boosts the eventual realization of NYK’s aim of manned autonomous ships that will make use of advanced technologies to support ship operation and enhance safety.
