About - Autosea
The Autosea project (Sensor fusion and collision avoidance for autonomous surface vehicles) is a knowledge-building project funded by the Research Council of Norway (RCN), DNV GL, KONGSBERG and Maritime Robotics under the MAROFF funding scheme. The project has a duration from August 2015 to July 2019, and employs two PhD candidates and a postdoctoral fellow. Additional PhD candidates funded by NTNU are contributing actively to the project. The project is owned by the department of Engineering Cybernetics at NTNU.
The Autosea project is the first academic research project in Norway which has adressed and solved collision avoidance for autonomous ships using sensor fusion. In the wake of this project, several more research projects on autonomous ship technology have emerged. Among these are the development of the all-electric passenger ferry Milliampere.
