Remote Controlled and Autonomous Vessels – Now coming.

Many companies are finishing their own systems for a fully remote controlled vessel, completely unmanned architecture

Recently has been successfully tested a remote operation controlled vessel using Wartsilla systems.This is something that has been undergoing for many years, in many variants such as automated controlled Vessel, Autonomous vessel and remote vessel. This is a next step, closer to a fully robotic seaborne.Onboard autonomous ship systems and the Shore Control Centre. Fraunhofer CML Many of them are defined as Unmanned vehicles, case covered by the MUNIN project. MUNIN is the abbreviation f...

  • It is nice to know this avenue of progress is being pursued.

  • I see this initiative as feasible from a navigation and ship handling point of view, but there are some grey areas like cargo management en route (LNG, LPG, Tankers, etc...) and preventive maintenance. I foresee a period of downtime after each voyage, which may hamper the commercial viability.

Remote control is two way telemetry, not much different from children's boating pond. Still striking fear into underwriters but doing so while spending a fortune on Satellite airtime. To a certain extent, of course, autonomy will report to a remote location where there will be expertise to intervene by remote control.
