Rolls-Royce sails ahead with plan for remotely controlled cargo ships

I’m sure I’ve reported on a future of remote control cargo ships before. Rolls Royce have created a good looking, if under-acted, promo video about life in the control centre for this one, though.

There’s a tale of future piracy in this, I reckon.

Massive crewless cargo ships plying the world’s oceans may sound far-fetched, but Rolls-Royce has been working on the idea for a number of years now. In fact, the company says it expects the first remotely controlled vessels to sail into operation by 2020.
