The inaugural International Conference on Maritime Autonomy and Remote Navigation (ICMAR Nav) took place from 27-30 November 2023 at the Australian Maritime College in Launceston, Tasmania.

Autonomy is an important subject for the maritime industry to discuss, with strong opinions from those supporting and opposing future technology. There are many concepts and applications for maritime autonomy, that could greatly benefit the industry far beyond the illusion of unmanned ships, which the term ‘Maritime Autonomy’ seems to trigger.

Addressing the theme ‘Driving Forward Autonomy in the Maritime Industry’, ICMAR Nav was designed to promote discussion about breakthroughs, challenges, and progression of autonomy in the maritime industry.

MOSES project was represented and presented by Mr. David Tidy from Trelleborg, who delivered a presentation entitled “MOSES Project Overview“. His presentation is available here.
