A conglomerate of organizations in China is working together to create the world’s largest unmanned surface vehicle (USV) test zone. And sea-going vessel design company Oceanalpha recently introduced the unmanned Cloudborne. Together, they are part of China’s dedicated development of autonomous shipping vehicles. The marine test site is outside Zhuhai in Guangdong province. The local government is working with the China Classification Society, the Wuhan University of Technology, and Oceanalpha. Unmanned shipping vehicles could save millions of dollars in staff wages and healthcare. Experts believe that ship captains will relocate from the world’s oceans to smart, automated, connected command centers.
