Category : Automotive, Transportation and Logistics | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Published | Pages : 190

The autonomous ships market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6.2% from 2020 to 2027 and expected to reach the market value of around US$ 10,147.6 Mn by 2027.

Autonomous ships are unmanned ships piloted by artificial intelligence (AI). These are the fleet of sensors that help the ship’s AI precise combined image of the circumscribed environment. The incorporated sensors include radar, lidar, high definition cameras, thermal imaging, and sonar. These are manufactured with different levels of autonomous operation including fully manned ships to partially operated, remotely operated, partially autonomous, and fully autonomous unmanned ships. The use of autonomous ships can reduce human error along with decreased crew costs. The developments in the autonomous ships market include the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) and Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) among others.
