Stepwise to autonomy


As vessels become more electric, digital and connected than ever before, ABB equips seafarers with existing solutions that augment their skillsets and enhance the overall safety and efficiency of operations.

Autonomous solutions are expected to transform international shipping in the coming decades. Recent development in sensor technology, data analytics and computing power enable to increase the level of automation in ship navigation, steering and control. As a basic definition an autonomous vessel is not necessarily unmanned but an unmanned vessel is, by default, autonomous to a high degree.

Autonomous does not mean unmanned. Human remote control and supervision are required in order to allow ships to operate more autonomously, and ABB systems make that possible.
