Takeovers and lessons learnt for autonomous shipping from the automotive sector

Whilst autonomous shipping is ramping up and increasing efforts are invested in the domain, automated driving in the automotive domain has reached the 'trough of disillusionment' according to the Gartner hype cycle. What can the maritime industry learn from the automotive industry and which takeovers can be used to find some short cuts avoiding unnecessary fails? The presentation strives to compare the requirements of the automotive and marine industries in an attempt to address synergies and challenges effectively. Namely, some new development paradigms must be introduced from the beginning to accomplish safety regulations.
