Tripartite MoU to enhance autonomous navigation


Lloyd’s Register (LR) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with ST Engineering Electronics, an information communications technologies provider and co-creator of Smart City Solutions, and Mitsui & Co, the second largest trading house in Japan. The partners will collaborate on the development of an ocean-going autonomous navigation system on a marine asset.

 

The MoU forms the foundation of the MPA-funded ‘World’s largest ocean-going autonomous vessel programme’, which has also been announced. 

 

Andy McKeran, LR's commercial director marine & offshore, said: “This project, a world first for the deployment of autonomous navigational technology to an ocean-going vessel for commercial operations, moves the industry towards the deployment of autonomous navigation systems onboard vessels for enhanced performance and critically, safety.” (kd)
