Wärtsilä Whitepaper: The Future of Smart Autonomy is here

Instead of contributing to the debate around what the future of shipping will look like and what role unmanned vessels will play, this Wärtsilä Whitepaper argues that the journey itself may turn out to be more important than the destination. The pursuit of autonomous vessels is already leading to smarter systems that can enhance the safety, cost-efficiency and environmental performance of today’s vessels; in practice, this means things like reducing collisions or incidents—especially in busy ports—assisting with docking, saving fuel through optimised speed profiles and reducing associated emissions.

Wärtsilä calls this “Smart Autonomy,” and it means a commercially viable approach that can be applied today at the beginning of our journey towards an autonomous shipping future.
