e5 Lab has announced the successful completion of a large-scale proof of concept (PoC) testing of the 'Roboship Joint Value Creation Project' in waters off Toyosu, Tokyo.

The project is based on the theme 'What future can we create for ships and the sea?' and involves 22 corporations across various industries and a ship classification society as well as e5 Lab. The test relied on high-speed offshore communication technology to conduct remote-controlled operation of unmanned vessels just off metropolitan Tokyo, and its success is claimed to promise an exciting future for these advanced technologies, and the maritime industry as a whole.

The Roboship joint development project members played key roles in producing a promotional film that shows the future and possibilities of such vessels. The video was created with passion and in the hope that it will serve as a catalyst to bring encouragement and energy to the Japanese ocean shipping and maritime industries.
