International conference on autonomous ships

The Danish Maritime Authority (DMA) has – in cooperation with a number of partners in industry and academia – considered the potential for development of Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS). In particular, the DMA and partners have considered which regulatory and practical technical obstacles may hinder the utilisation of MASS technology in commercial shipping, and which initiatives could be taken to enable the use of MASS technology.

The conference is "by invitation only" and will be held at the IDA Maritime Conference Center in Copenhagen.
