Ships without captains

Vessels with no living soul aboard navigate vast oceans. These are not ghost ships, but real tankers, bulk carriers and container ships. This is possible thanks to the ‘Advanced Autonomous Waterborne Applications’ (AAWA) project that was launched in 2015 and has become fully-fledged and widespread. Today, millions of tons of freight cross the oceans in all directions without immediate human intervention, which saves money and makes sea freight transportation safe and effective.

Станислав Автопилотирование недоступно автомобилям, а здесь у нас огромные корабли требующие постоянного человеческого контроля. Во время шторма экипаж только своей работой позволяет избегать ЧП. Однако, согласен с предсказанием, так как при усовершенствовании ИИ корабли смогут владеть и управлять на автопилоте. 06 Feb 2019
