Kongsberg Maritime has announced that the world’s first adaptive ferry transit has been conducted during normal service. This landmark event, which took place last week on a vessel fully loaded with passengers and vehicles and demonstrated fully automatic control from dock to dock, is a key step forward in the integration of autonomous technology into everyday shipping operations.
Wärtsilä has secured the first order for its auto-docking technology. The SmartDock system reduces the risk of human error and improves safety and efficiency by automating the docking procedure and eliminating the need for ship officers to perform technical manoeuvres multiple times a day.
