The concept of autonomous cargo ships has been into existence since decades. The concept has gained momentum with the advent of advanced sensor technology enabling the development of driverless cars and unmanned aircraft. Autonomous ships are unmanned vessels that are operated remotely from control stations onshore. This virtually eliminates the need for any human personnel onboard. Autonomous ships are based on three basic components viz. sensor combination, control algorithm and communication. Sensor combination includes fusing different types of radars, thermal imaging sensors, LiDAR, visual cameras and several other sensors. The data gathered from all of the aforementioned devices is used to gain an accurate perspective of the surrounding conditions. Control algorithm is designed to analyze the data gathered from sensor network for navigation and collision avoidance. The communication module is responsible for connectivity with satellite and control station.

The overall autonomous ships market is expected to be driven by the enhanced operation offered by these vessels over conventional manual vessels. Autonomous ships are believed to be capable of reducing operating costs by nearly 20%. In addition, autonomous ships eliminate the possibility of human errors, thereby reducing the number of accidents. Furthermore, market growth is also expected from the rising military budgets over unmanned systems. Rising technological advancement is estimated to provide substantial boost to the adoption of autonomous ships across the defense sector. Nevertheless, lack of regulatory framework and the threat of cyber-attacks pose a significant challenges to the market growth.
