On April 28th, the “Connecting EU insights” organized the session ‘Shaping the future of European Short Sea Shipping: Autonomous & Automated technologies’ with the aim to highlight how autonomous and automated technologies can stimulate the modernization of intra-European waterborne transport and increase the modal shift from land-based transportation to Short Sea Shipping.
Speakers from EMSA, ports and ongoing R&D projects, among them AUTOSHIP, presented their views on this issue. The clear conclusion from the presentations is that there is no doubt that autonomy will play an important role in making short sea shipping more environment friendly and more competitive. AUTOSHIP will certainly do its bit to make this happen!
Take a look at the presentation made by SINTEF to discover more about AUTOSHIP aims and goals.
