While to many autonomous shipping may seem a far-fetched, unreachable or even undesirable goal, it is much closer than they think and rightly so. It’s easier to navigate the sea than the street despite the latter being more reachable to most people. But the stakes are high and therefore sustainable solutions like Zeabuz will pave the way.
“Our autonomy solution is world-leading and can enable self-driving ferries that safely maneuver among other boats, dock to the quay by themselves and handle passengers safely,” said Susanne Jäschke, Zeabuz Interim CEO. “We work with DNV GL, the Norwegian Coastal Administration and the Norwegian Maritime Directorate to test two prototypes in Trondheim. The unique technology has been developed at NTNU and will be made available to the company.”
