Unmanned autonomous robots are gaining prominence in the marine sector. Key trending applications include: autonomous surface vessels, unmanned underwater vehicle/robots, and shipboard robots. Automation in the marine industry largely enhances the efficiency of shipping goods.

Presently, research community is increasingly focussing in autonomous vessels and its applicability in the marine sector. Autonomous vessels will minimize human involvement and reduce shipping costs, while improving delivery efficiency of marine vessels.
Robotic technologies for marine applications are largely leveraged by transportation and defense sectors. Robots will mitigate hazardous risks thereby increasing the safety of human personnel. Marine robots are used in off-shore oil and gas; investigation activities of the ocean, ship, and harbour maintenance; and in defence marine robotic vessels. Government funding is boosting development and adoption of robots for marine applications.
The technology and innovation report aims to capture the impact of robotic technologies for different applications in the marine sector.
