"Autonomous drone technology is an area in rapid development. There are many positive aspects of using this technology in offshore industries where the cost of manual labour is very high,” says Associate Professor Erdal Kayacan, Aarhus University, who is one of those working to develop new intelligent technologies for the maritime sector.
