NETHERLANDS MARITIME TECHNOLOGY - Official international launch

CMTI AUTONOMOUS SHIP STUDY
In this study the potential of remote vessel state monitoring and state
influence is investigated to be able to sail a ship with reduced crew or even without crew.
Reduction of the crew to (almost) unmanned sailing.
A better knowledge on how the ship behaves in practice autonomously, will
allow designers to increase performance to match real operational conditions.
INTERNATIONAL MARITIME COUNCIL - BAGSVAERD, DENMARK
Peter Sand is quoted as saying: "Currently the debate as to autonomous shipping is more academic than operational." Peter is an analyst at the Bagsvaerd, Denmark-based Baltic and International Maritime Council, whose members control about 65 percent of the global fleet. Apparently, none of them had yet raised the question of drone ships with the trade group.
UAVs have been approved by the FAA for civilian operations, crop dusting, border controls and film making. GOOGLE - Are streets ahead with autonomous cars that have a 100% safety track record at time of publication. So why is shipping different?
