Self-driven ships make a wave

By 2018 there will be fewer container trucks plying Norwegian roads, as Norwegian shipping company Yara is planning to launch unmanned ships to transport cargo between the countries biggest ports.

The first such vessel – Yara Brikeland – is set to launch in 2019 and will be initially manned. By 2020, it will run autonomously, resulting in around 40,000 trucks being taken off the roads.

Will unmanned ships shake up the maritime industry?
