The Australian Autonomous Vessel Forum will explore the challenges, opportunities, risks and priorities for regulation.  

It will bring together leaders in the fields of autonomous vessel design, technology, operation and regulation.  

The forum program includes presentations by industry and government experts, a Q&A panel, and workshop sessions to stimulate discussion. 

Captain Marko Rahikainen, Chief Advisor to the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency, will deliver a keynote address on Finland’s experience with technology and automation, and their goal of establishing the world’s first autonomous maritime transport system by 2025. 

We are pleased to be partnering with the Trusted Autonomous Systems Defence CRC during the forum.
