“For all those with an interest in the future of shipping it is an event not to be missed”
Now more than ever autonomous ships are looking like a reality and with that focus in mind we have been approached to host a Smartship Exchange to further deepen and uniquely integrate digital transformation into the whole chain of the marine sector, from innovation, design, manufacturing and operation to research and development. Autonomy and remote operations are an important topic for the maritime industry and in recent years there has been rapid development driven by a significant increase in the demand for such worldwide. The Exchange will look at the issues involved with increasing autonomy in shipping with an introduction to the concept, an in depth look at developments, the technology currently present and what’s in the future, safety and assurance of vessels, what changes mean for fleet owners, what are the legal and insurance implications and of course the human element.
