Shaping the future of European Short Sea Shipping: Autonomous & Automated
technologies

28th April

12:00pm - 1:30 pm

MOSES has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 861678

The maritime industry is a constantly evolving business sector, which continuously tries to maintain its competitiveness by embracing innovation, which is widely recognized as a determinant of success.

Disruptive technologies that enable automation and autonomy have been recently receiving a lot of attention, in part, due to their strong potential to revolutionise the landscape of the maritime industry and make it more efficient and sustainable.


This session aims to highlight how autonomous and automated technologies can stimulate the modernization of intra-European waterborne transport and increase the modal shift from land-based transportation to Short Sea Shipping.
The session will focus on the operational improvements required to address the challenges of efficient and seamless port processes (e.g., manoeuvring, berthing, and cargo handling), the balance of traffic flows (backhaul traffic challenge), and
the participation of small ports to the supply chain.

 

The session will also address the benefits of automation and autonomy on the industry-wide challenge of reducing environmental impacts, such as noise and GHG emissions.
Special attention will also be given to the transition toward next generation Short Sea Shipping in the EU by exploiting the operational capabilities of autonomous ship concepts.
