Wilhelmsen and KONGSBERG are joining forces to take the next step in autonomous shipping by offering a complete value chain for autonomous ships, from design and development, to control systems, logistics services and vessel operations.
Rolls-Royce has completed the £1.3 million MAXCMAS (MAchine eXecutable Collision regulations for Marine Autonomous Systems) research project, demonstrating that the operation of autonomous vessels can meet, if not exceed, current collision avoidance (COLREG) rules.
Rolls-Royce has opened a research facility in Turku, Finland, to develop the technologies Rolls-Royce and its partners require to shape the future of an increasingly more autonomous global shipping industry.
Gard’s creation in 1907 was a rejection of ’new‘ technology as the association was formed by shipowners who rejected steamships and wanted a Club dedicated only to sailing ships.
The Mayflower Autonomous Ship project (MAS) is an innovative new venture to design, build and sail the world’s first fully autonomous vessel across the Atlantic Ocean.
Established to support the growth in development of new solutions for autonomous maritime operations, the new area is open to both Norwegian and international organisations.
Maritime regulation should be made more flexible if it is to support the development of autonomous ships. The report will be used as a platform for the future effort of DMA to develop the regulation.
Rolls-Royce and ESA have signed a ground-breaking cooperation agreement aimed at pursuing space activities in support of autonomous, remote controlled shipping and promoting innovation in European digital logistics.
ASV Global has converted a 26ft hydrographic survey launch to enable it to operate autonomously using the proven ASView control system, while maintaining its ability to operate in a conventional manned mode.
ABB has unveiled a new situational awareness solution that will make vessel operations safer and more efficient. The solution can be used by officers anywhere onboard a ship and marks the next step towards remotely controlled and ultimately autonomous ships.
