MUNIN; autonomous ship; unmanned vessel

Autonomous and unmanned vessels are seen as a key element in a competitive and sustainable European shipping industry in the future. For this reason, a new research project called MUNIN (Maritime Unmanned Navigation through Intelligence in Networks) started this September aiming to develop a concept for autonomous ships and to prove its feasibility. It is named after the Old Norse raven, Munin that flew around the world each day without guidance, gathering information and safely returning it - its "cargo" - to its master, Odin.
