Self-sailing container developed in Norway

A group of nine recent Norwegian graduates, working as part of a project with DNV GL, have developed a smart ‘robot container’ concept vehicle, with built-in cooling systems and the ability to sail to ports autonomously without any human interaction.

Rolls-Royce, The Norwegian University of Technology Science (NTNU), research organisation SINTEF Ocean, and classification society DNV GL have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to create an open source digital platform for use in the development of new ships, capable of creating a vessel’s ‘digital twin’.

The Department of Engineering Cybernetics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is leading a new Knowledge-Building Project for Industry that will study collision avoidance for advanced ships.

Rolls-Royce, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the Marintek Research Centre have renewed their long-standing partnership, with the aim of continuing to develop high-tech solutions for the maritime sector, focusing on improving ship performance in rough seas.
