Rosetti Superyachts reveals remote control navigation system

Rosetti Superyachts has announced it is adapting remote control technology from the commercial sector for use in the yachting industry.  

Following the current revolution of self-drive transportation, the Italian yard has said they are working to utilise remote control technology to create self-driving and unmanned vessels. 

The creation of such autonomous vessels could result in long deliveries being conducted by a land-based senior office using remote-control technology.

A Lloyd’s Register certified tugboat, Giano, was installed with a remote control system and was controlled by a captain on land during the ITS Tugnology convention in Marseille earlier this year. 

The remote control system is based on a M2M connection (machine-to-machine) system supported by two internet encrypted tunnels with a direct connection between the ship and remote bridge.

The system envisaged by Rosetti would see the navigation, engine room and propulsion equipment controlled through a video system and night vision cameras. The shipyard claimed this would enhance security during navigation and reduce management and insurance costs.
