Norway building crewless container ship

     Crewless container ship

Norway is building a $25 million crewless container ship that will navigate itself.  The vessel, dubbed the “Tesla of the Seas”, will use a system of Global Positioning Systems (GPS), radars, cameras and sensors to exit and enter ports and navigate around other boat traffic.

Compared to a conventional container vessel, the crewless ship will cost about three times more to build, but up to 90% less to operate, primarily through sharp reductions in fuel and crew costs.   Norway is a leader in the race to build the world’s first crewless vessels, known formally as Autonomous cargo ships.  Semi-autonomous cargo ships could begin operations in the second half of 2018, and become fully autonomous by 2020.
