High Roller deal to build ‘ghost ships’

Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

ROLLS-ROYCE has joined forces with tech gi­ant Google to build nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems for fu­tur­is­tic un­manned “ghost ships”.

The Bri­tish engi­neer­ing firm will use Google’s cloud-based ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence soft­ware to guide the ves­sels.

The firm, best known for its aero en­gines, said the kit will also boost crew safety on ex­ist­ing ships by mon­i­tor­ing data sys­tems such as radar.

The fu­ture of cargo ship­ping could be un­manned, and navies are also keen to de­velop the tech.

Rolls ex­ec­u­tive Karno Ten­ovuo said: “In­tel­li­gent aware­ness will help with an au­ton­o­mous fu­ture.”
