AutoDrone 2024

(Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL), UiT The Arctic University of Norway, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN) ) are pleased to invite you to the 4th Autonomous Sea Drone Championship Autodrone 2024 hosted by USN in Horten, Norway. We are thrilled to host and organize the autonomous challenge for the fourth time in Norway.  


Autonomous Sea Drones

Autonomous robotic vessels or "seadrones" are model vessels that are able to navigate autonomously through the use of advanced sensors and algorithms that control the vessel through electric battery driven propulsion and steering. There is an enormous interest in the futuristic concept of autonomous ships defined as Maritime Autonomous Surface Ship (MASS) by IMO.  For the development of advanced systems and applications in the maritime domain small model vessels may serve as efficient test beds. 

One of the most challenging aspects of seadrones is the ability to operate in adverse weather and various wave conditions while navigating autonomously and avoiding collisions.

​The AutoDrone 2024 will gather professionals and students from all over Norway with common interests in overcoming these challenges.
