IMO Webinar: WMU presentation on the EU H2020 Bugwright2 project on Autonomous Robotic Inspection and Maintenance on Ship Hulls
Dear IMO Community and Ocean Group, Dear International community,

The World Maritime University (WMU) is pleased to present at the IMO and the Ocean group Webinar and provide first-hand insights into findings from the EU Horizon 2020 Programme funded project BUGWRIGHT2 - 'Autonomous Robotic Inspection and Maintenance on Ship Hulls'.

The presentation is scheduled for 1 December 2021 from 10:00-11:30am UK time (11:00-12.30 CET) and is titled "Overcoming Regulatory Barriers For Service Robotics In An Ocean Industry Context". Findings gathered by the GOI research team during work conducted under the work package titled “legal insights” will be presented.

The principal objective of BUGWRIGHT2 is to bridge the gap between the current and desired capabilities of service robotics, i.e., micro aerial vehicles, magnetic crawlers and remotely operated vehicles, through the development and demonstration of an adaptable autonomous robotic solution for servicing outer hulls of bulk carriers. To this end, the task of the World Maritime University-Sasakawa Global Ocean Institute (GOI) revolves around the development of a techno-regulatory blueprint taking into account the state-of-play at the international level; selected jurisdictions (US, Canada, Norway, Netherlands, China and Singapore) as well as the European Union regional level. The presentation seeks to provide first-hand insight into important results gathered by the GOI BUGWRIGHT2 research team.
