First automatic ferry enters service in Norway

In February 2020 the Norwegian ferry Bastø Fosen VI made the Oslo fjord crossing between Horten and Moss under completely automatic control while fully loaded with passengers and vehicles.
This step forward in the integration of autonomous technology into everyday shipping operations was made possible by close collaboration between shipping company Bastø Fosen, Kongsberg Maritime and the Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA).
