Rolls-Royce Reveals Vision for Remote-Controlled Cargo Ships

Rolls-Royce is known for manufacturing the types of luxury cars which help guys to impress women and send a message of extreme success! However, this high-end auto manufacturer may be branching out in the future, by creating cargo ships which are controlled via remote. Today, we're going to talk about this new development, which is supposed to launch within four years.

Rolls-Royce has an esteemed history as a car manufacturer and as the producer of airplane engines. The next challenge for this company may well be big cargo ships which don't require human captens. While this sounds fantastical, technological advancements make it possible and Rolls-Royce is exploring this type of technology today.

 

The Control Interface Is Straight from Science Fiction

The company's current vice president of Operations feels that this type of advancement is the future of cargo shipping. Autonomous cargo ships will take cargo from Point A to Point B, via remote control operators who will run ship control systems from afar.

A range of other technologies will also be needed in order to ensure that ships leave and arrive safely. These include drone flyover machines which will check out ships and transmit data which isolates or excludes problems. These drones will also keep an eye on areas around the ships. The remote control interface is straight from science fiction, including a mission control area which calls to mind Star Wars or Star Trek. A variety of ships may be run via this interface.

This Remote Control Management of Ships Will Drastically Reduce Costs

The benefits of moving a ship from place to place without a crew are myriad. For example, shipping companies won't need to worry about providing space for crew to live and work, so they will be able to pack more cargo into every load. Also, the safety of human passengers won't factor in. Potentially, this type of remote control management of ships will reduce operational costs, open up space and make it easier to navigate in harsh conditions, without putting lives in the balance.

Clearly, Rolls-Royce has a strong track record in terms of its products. That's why hip hop legends like Jay-Z like to swan around in their luxury cars and write songs which reference these millionaire and billionaire status symbols. So, it's stands to reason that this auto manufacturer will have the chops to bring its vision for remote control cargo ships to fruition. It's all about plotting a course and staying the course!

 

Rolls-Royce Is Committed to Make This a Reality

To learn more about this development, be sure to keep an eye out for more news reports because Rolls-Royce will be sharing plenty of details about this new development in the future. Technology is changing our world, one invention at a time and it's exciting to contemplate what the future holds.

Without doubt, a lot of challenges will need to be overcome before "captains" are able to take the helm electronically, from a distance. However, it's safe to say they Rolls-Royce is committed to making remote-controlled cargo ships a reality. What do you think about this type of technological advancement?
