Very important news has hit the reports pertaining to the production of self-navigating shipping vessels. 40 shipbuilders from Japan, along with shipping companies and tech firms have come together to make this production come true.

This will use an Artificial Intelligence system for self-navigating according to the sources. The AI technology used in self-navigating the ships is speculated to be priced around tens of billions of yen.

The shipbuilders have come together to solve this problem of the need for huge funding. Companies like Mitsui OSK Lines, NTT, and Nippon Yusen are working hand in hand with Japan Marine United, an expert shipbuilder.

This will enable them to have various ideas and share their particular field-expertise, reducing the cost and dividing it significantly. The new technology has predicted that maritime emissions will be drastically lessened.

Besides, the AI will help save a large amount of fuel, thereby reducing the pressure on the shipping operators by around 20 percent. This market survey and research has been done by the Autonomous Ships Market – Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2020-2025) of ResearchAndMarkets.com.

Thus with this automation, a significant step will be achieved in the direction of the navigation and control of ships in Japan and help reduce the pressure on manpower and thereby increase efficiency.
