Autonomous Shipping Initiative for European Waters

Project description

Launching next-gen autonomous ships in Europe

Although Asia has dominated the shipbuilding industry for several decades due to lower-cost manufacturing, Europe has maintained a leading market share in specialised, high-quality vessels. Supported by the industrial and technological expertise of leading European maritime companies, the EU-funded AUTOSHIP project aims to build and demonstrate two self-navigating ships as prototypes for a fleet of next-generation, fully-autonomous vessels. The scheme includes the necessary shore control network and technology package for autonomous navigation and secure communications. Two pilot tests will take place demonstrating goods transport along the Baltic Corridor. This project will strengthen the European maritime cluster by launching a multi-billion euro market, creating high-skilled jobs and safer eco-friendly marine transport.
