Thanks and see you @ IFAC CAMS 2024
October 5, 2022
The NOC and IPC would like to thank all the conference delegates that have significantly contributed to make the 14th IFAC CAMS 2022 a great conference. It has been a remarkable experience to witness again the marine control and robotics community physically gathered in one place to share knowledge and foster new research ideas. Our gratitude goes to all the speakers for their professionalism in delivering high quality talks and to the delegates for scientifically challenging the presented works.
IFAC CAMS 2022 gave a strong and clear signal that the IFAC marine control and robotics community keeps thriving to meet the societal demands for a more sustainable and equitable use of the ocean space. Well done everybody!
We wish fair winds and following seas to our colleagues at Virginia Tech with the organization of the 15th IFAC CAMS 2024.
Traffic circulation in DTU campus
September 11, 2022
Due to construction work in connection with the new light rail infrastructure, there are major traffic circulation changes at DTU campus that affect the bus connections with Kongens Lyngby station. A detailed map of how to reach DTU campus is available here.
To plan your journey by public transport use the journey planner at www.rejseplanen.dk. The busses connecting Kongens Lyngby station with DTU are 180 and 300S. More information about transportation are available here.

Professor at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences
The adaptation of maritime autonomy - The presentation starts with a look at Viking navigation and shows how we still work in similar ways today. We move on to discussing automation and autonomy, with examples from a Norwegian research project, HUMANE. We will explore the development of maritime autonomy, look at some myths and the problem of the business case for autonomous shipping. Then we will turn to the future of smart ships and how they can be designed to work in a socio-technical system. Finally, we conclude with the role of humans and a challenge for the engineers.
Research Manager at Maritime Robotics
Marine Surface and Aerial Robots: past, present and future - Maritime Robotics develops innovative solutions for maritime data acquisition, including uncrewed surface vehicles (USV) and uncrewed aerial systems (UAS). In 2011, Maritime Robotics built and commissioned their first USV. Since then, many smaller USVs sold wordwide, as the global USV market grew. In this talk, we look back at accomplishments so far and look forward at where industry and research are moving towards. We highlight some recent projects and new markets and discuss challenges ahead.
Professor at the Technical University of Denmark
Surface Ship Autonomy Coming of Age - Autonomous technology is coming of age, and autonomous surface ships are finding their way for testing at sea. Challenges remain, however. Ensuring dependable behaviours in all situations, validating resilience to the unexpected are subjects for intense activity and prerequisites to obtain general approval by authorities. The plenary will evaluate facts and features of the complex technologies behind the scenes of marine autonomy. Challenges are discussed and solutions outlined. Autonomous supervision architectures are emphasised due to salient features including clearly separated functionalities that match established procedures for watch-keeping and navigation, and ability to validate intelligent modules individually. At system level, they form an integrated entirety with reproducible results and, should this be needed, transparent mechanisms to enable human intervention.

CCAS is a research and innovation hub that, by leveraging existing research leadership in electrical engineering, computer science, management engineering and space technology, will accelerate the development of autonomous systems' technologies across several domains, and will investigate socio-economic-regulatory enablers and barriers towards the actualization of autonomous systems in the wider societal context.
The Danish Automation Company is working to promote the conditions for automation in Denmark. DAU does this by supporting the exchange of experience on technology development and business models, as well as providing inspiration for new automation solutions. DAU is not involved in solving specific automation tasks, but through its initiatives and activities, it wants to contribute to the exchange of experience between users of automation. DAU is also used as a strategic partner for a number of educational institutions.
As an industry association, Danish Maritime is the meeting place for Danish manufacturers of maritime equipment and ships. The overall tasks of the association is to contribute to the continuous success and global competitiveness of the Danish maritime industry by promoting favourable framework conditions for the Danish maritime industry.
