Bloomberg News featured an articled titled Rolls-Royce Drone Ships Challenge $375 Billion Industry: Freight on February 25, 2014. Rolls Royce believes that the safer, cheaper and less polluting drone ships might be deployed in regions such as the Baltic Sea within a decade. The technology is available now, which is endorsed by the prototype preparation in the MUNIN project finishing next year. The prototype allows to conduct simulated sea trials to assess the costs and benefits. However, according to Rolls Royce challenges due to regulatory hurdles, union opposition and conservative ship owners will slow global adoption.
