European training and research network on Autonomous Barges for Smart Inland Shipping

Project Details


Towards smart shipping on inland waterways

More than 37 000 km of waterways connect hundreds of cities and industrial regions in Europe. Thirteen Member States have an interconnected waterway network, making inland waterway transport a competitive alternative to road and rail transport. In this context, the AUTOBarge project, supported by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, will launch 15 PhD positions to promote autonomous barges for smart inland shipping. Tapping into the advances in mass autonomous shipping technologies, AUTOBarge will set the stage for a transport revolution. It will offer the first-ever training programme for the application of unmanned or autonomous vessels for smart inland shipping. The goal will be to train early-stage researchers in remote control, monitoring, smart logistics, and regulatory aspects related to inland shipping.
