Conference

This three-day conference covers not only the challenges of testing and developing autonomous maritime technology, but also the legal implications, the potential economic benefits for fleet owners, safety and security issues and, most importantly, how to develop a universal regulatory framework.

The projects MUNIN and The Advanced Autonomous Waterborne Applications Initiative, being led by Rolls-Royce, have shown that the technology is not far away.
