Viewpoint: Future imperfect

The need for ‘sea skills’ is not going to evaporate because of the ability to monitor and control ships and machinery more closely from ashore, but even before we get to that consideration, the most unproven part of automation is the absence of a track record of any company prepared to spend the sorts of money these ships would gobble up

Shipowners have never wanted to stump up for ‘ship of the future’ programmes before, so why would they fork out today for unproven hype about a revolution of autonomy in shipping?
