Speaker - Prof Andrew Norris FRIN
Topic - " TOWARDS AUTONOMOUS VESSELS _ A REAL REVOLUTION"
This is a joint meeting with the Solent Branch of the Nautical Institute and the UK Hydrographic Society (Southern Region). It will be followed by the AGM of the RIN - Solent Branch.
The age of the autonomous vessel has already arrived. The speaker will explain the present situation, how the future is likely to evolve and why their use will inevitably expand. He will also look at the drawbacks that could come from ever-increasing automation and will also discuss the impact of the "revolution" on leisure vessels.
