Japan News (The), 24 Aug 2017, online:-
In 2019, a remote-controlled vessel will be tested by Japan's Nippon Yusen across the Pacific Ocean. This is part of the company's move to take up fully autonomous technology. In 2016, Nippon Yusen revealed that it has collaborated with Tokyo Keiki and Japan Radio as well as Furu-no Electric to research crash avoidance techniques with autonomous vessels. The test may be carried out using a huge container ship by Nippon Yusen from Japan to North America. Additionally, autonomous ship technology is also being worked on by Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha and Mitsui OSK Lines.
