The IMO Maritime Safety Committee will start to establish a new international legal framework for the safe operation of autonomous ships. Together with a number of countries, Denmark, has taken the initiative to include autonomous shipping on the IMO agenda. United Nations’ International Maritime Organization (IMO) is in line with the proposal and will now start mapping how existing international regulation can be applied to autonomous ships and maritime technologies; technologies that are developing rapidly these years.
