Digitalisation in the Context of Autonomous Shipping

Digitalisation in the Context of Autonomous Shipping – Dr. Julius Moeller
Tuesday 02 April 2024 at 6:30 pm (AEDT). In-Person Networking at 6:00 pm.

We will be hosting a hybrid technical presentation on Zoom and at UNSW ADFA on Tuesday 02 April at 6:30 pm. If coming in person we will kick off networking at 6:00 pm.

Presentation Outline:
Topic: Digitalisation in the Context of Autonomous Shipping
The maritime industry plays a crucial role in global trade and commerce, and the utilisation of contemporary technologies is contributing increasingly to safe and efficient shipping operations. As a consequence, there has been a great demand within the industry to introduce and enhance the next generation of technologies in the process of a digital transformation. This has been acknowledged by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in several documents. A popular example of IMO legislation related to digitalisation is the introduction of the e-Navigation strategy improving the safety and efficiency of shipping operations as early as 2008. Building on these advancements, the industry is now also witnessing a transition towards autonomous shipping. This paradigm shift aims to improve operational efficiency, safety, and environmental sustainability.

This presentation will provide an overview of the current developments at both national and international levels and present AMSA’s activities in this space.
