Ship autopilot steers during evasive manoeuvres and docking

Demo: control room for an autonomous ship. Credit: Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is developing safe steering for the remote-monitored and controlled autonomous ships of the future. The new technology has been developed for navigation systems and ship autopilots, which steer ships automatically. The ships of the future will largely be controlled by artificial intelligence. However, these autonomous unmanned vessels must be monitored and controlled on demand by land-based professionals. This trend sets…
