Hamburg symposium on autonomous transportation in the road, aviation and marine sectors

Group Executive Officer Andrew Bardot was invited to participate in a symposium in Hamburg on 19 April and to present on the ramifications for marine insurers of the development of remotely controlled and fully autonomous merchant vessels. The symposium provided a useful opportunity to update the attending participants from the insurance, shipowning and legal sectors on the pace of technological developments towards remotely controlled and fully autonomous vessels and the regulatory compliance challenges posed by reducing the numbers of, or of entirely removing, on-board trained seafarers.
