Introduksjon ved professor Erik Røsæg

The interest in autonomous ships has grown exponentially in the past few years. Only five or so years ago, the prospect of unmanned and autonomous vessels sailing on the seas was not considered to be realistic, while now the debate centers on when and in what format and pace the development will take place. Law has a key role to play in this development and legal obstacles are often singled out as principal barriers to a rapid introduction of new technologies in this field. In a few years autonomous ships has turned from a non-issue to one of the main regulatory topics being addressed at the International Maritime Organization (IMO), but the discussion is still in its infancy.

 

Increased reliance on automation for tasks that have traditionally been undertaken by ships' crews raises interesting legal question across the whole spectrum of maritime law. From the law of the sea and IMO Conventions, which are crucial for enabling autonomy to be introduced in the first place, to essentially any aspect of private maritime law, including transport contracts, collision, salvage and marine insurance, the development will entail fundamental alterations to current practices.
