autonomous ship

Deltamarin is participating in a two year autonomous ship research project – Advanced Autonomous Waterborne Applications Initiative (AAWA).  The project funded by Tekes (Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation) brings together universities, ship designers, equipment manufacturers, and classification societies to explore the economic, social, legal, regulatory and technological factors which need to be addressed to make the initiative a reality.

The project will run until the end of 2017 and will pave the way for a vessel designed to validate the project’s research.  The project will combine the expertise of some of Finland’s top academic researchers; from Tampere University of Technology, VTT, Åbo Akademi,  Aalto University, and the University of Turku and leading members of the maritime cluster including, Rolls-Royce, Napa, Deltamarin,  DNV GL and Inmarsat.

For more information see the press release from Rolls-Royce.
