THE PATH TOWARDS UNMANNED SHIPPING
The Autonomous Ship Technology Symposium will bring together ship designers, fleet owners, naval architects, classification societies, equipment manufacturers and maritime research organisations to discuss and debate the technological, regulatory and legal developments necessary to make autonomous and unmanned ships a reality.

This three-day conference will cover 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.
Leading experts from around the world will present their views and current findings, leading to a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and network with this pioneering community of maritime engineers.
The projects MUNIN and The Advanced Autonomous Waterborne Applications Initiative, being led by Rolls-Royce, have shown that the technology is not far away.

Topics under discussion:
Autonomous navigation technology
Automated onboard systems
E-navigation
Automation software
Maritime remote control technology
Potential economic benefits
Legal implications
Environmental impact
Maritime regulations
Simulation
Testing and validation
Piracy
Cyber security
Impact on maritime workforce and human factors
Maritime insurance
Reliability testing of software and hardware systems
Case studies and research projects
Remote satellite communications
