Abstract
As a Iang-term sustainability approach to shipping, the European FP7 project MUNIN (Maritime Navigation through lntelligence in Networks) develops a concept for an unmanned and autonomaus merchant vessels and investigates the feasibility to operate a dry bulk carrier completely unmanned during deep sea voyage. A core objective is to create a system, which allows autonomaus ship navigation at least an the same safety Ievei or comparable to conventional vessels, but preferably even higher. Due to an expected simultaneaus Operation of manned and unmanned vessels an the oceans, it must be considered that the autonomaus system still has to fit into the existing international legal framework of shipping.
