ESR13 – Modelling the economic implications of the adoption of autonomous inland shipping

Host institution: NORD (NO)
Project title/WP: Modelling the economic implications of the adoption of autonomous inland shipping (WP3)
Supervisory board: Prof. T.A. Mathisen (NORD, NO), R. R. Hermann (NORD), Prof. S. MacKinnon (CUT, SE), J. Dahlman (VTI, SE)
Objectives:

  • Develop a conceptual model based on complex-system principles about the different factors (market, policy, technology) influencing the adoption of autonomous inland shipping by shipping companies
  • Model socio-economic scenarios for ship-owner’s adoption of autonomous inland shipping

Expected Results:

  • Socio-technological analysis of the autonomous inland shipping and interaction with then shipping industry complex-system
  • Validated adoption model of autonomous inland shipping that considers the contextual conditions of the technology, business cases and geographical operation

Planned secondment(s):

  • CUT (SE): Gathering data about the complex socio-technical system within the shipping industry (M20-22, secondment mentor: S. MacKinnon) (joint secondment with ESR12)
  • VTI (SE): Link the theoretical model with practical applications (M25-27, secondment mentor: J. Dahlman)

Enrolment in the Doctoral degree: NORD (NO).
