How will vessels do without crew where they can be demanded and how perspective such developments? Photo: depositphotos.com in Russia will begin This summer tests of vessels which are operated by artificial intelligence. But at first the pilotless ships will pass tests by waves virtual. That the vessel could do without crew, work of all systems will be checked previously on the computer. The respective platform is created by the "Aviation and Sea Electronics" enterprise and the Kronstadt Technologies company. Dmitry Kazunin of the deputy administrator of the direction on development "Kronstadt Technologies" "By means of digital technologies is created imitation of the environment which includes vessels, means of communication, navigation aids, disorders, actions of various natural phenomena, all this information gathers for the UAV, and he perceives this Wednesday by means of the digital sensors". The project started last year got approval of the working group "Marinette". 263 million rubles from Fund of support of projects of the National technological initiative will be allocated for its financing till 2021, and the fund will receive a subsidy from the federal budget for the same sum. The project is implemented on the terms of public-private partnership therefore own investments will be made also by its participants. A ratio of the state and private investments — 60% and 40%. In this area such companies as the British Rolls-Royce and the Japanese Mitsui are engaged in developments and abroad, including. It is supposed that vessels without people will be onboard demanded in sea freight transportation and will allow to cut down expenses of shipowners on compensation of crew members, and it, by some estimates, about a third of all operating costs. Such developments are how perspective? Mikhail Voitenko the editor-in-chief of Sea Bulletin online media "On the one hand, all this business is completely automated, completely computerized, on the other hand, there are places, there are certain types of vessel where before this automation still oh how many to pull. And from the third party, absolutely unclear, what economic sense in this case. Not so heavy expenses on crews, especially on the modern and completely automated [vessels] even if it is the huge container carrier, 15-20 people, it is any more not such money that it would be possible to begin seriously all this". However, so far about the ships in general without crew of the speech does not go. At the first stage of technology will allow to reduce number of people onboard to several people. Potential of the world market of automation of navigation is commented by the CEO of the industry Pinsk center "Marinette" Alexander. Alexander Pinsky the CEO of the industry center "Marinette" "We now with you speak about use of technology of automatic and remote navigation for regular vessels, that is it is modernization of the existing vessels which leads to decrease in need for number and qualification of crew onboard. The market of such technologies which modernize increase efficiency of a sushchestvuyushcha
