Autonomous Ships 2024

In Partnership With:

IDA Maritim Logo RGB Grey

The rapid technological development in the field of Maritime Autonomy is creating an opportunity for the marine industry as well as a challenge for the regulatory framework. In recent years, various ships projects involving coastal and ocean-going routes with different degrees of autonomy are being tested. Those will have great implications for naval architects, shipbuilders, shipping companies, and maritime systems providers.

In December 2024, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) will host 109th session of the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) where the Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) group will meet again. The Royal Institution of Naval Architects and the Danish Society of Engineers (IDA Maritime) are organising the 3rd Autonomous ship conference on 20-21 November 2024 ahead of the IMO meeting. The conference will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark.
