With the IMO due to complete its Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships scoping exercises in 2020, members of the Press are invited to a special Webinar exploring developments in the technologies, standards and connectivity reshaping shipping for an autonomous future.
The one-hour online session will cut through the misunderstandings of the autonomous ship to focus on its core ambitions for enhanced safety, efficiency and environmental performance. It will also provide a briefing on the progress of trials and towards the regulatory standards needed if the concept is to meet its potential.
