A panel of auonomous technology experts took to the Think Tank stage at Workboat Show 2021 during a session titled Autonomous Vessels: They’ve Arrived…Are They Here to Stay? One of those experts was Olivier Cadet from Kongsberg, who is uniquely qualified to speak to this topic as he has been responsible for the teams managing Kongsberg Maritime’s products portfolio aligned with autonomous operations and digital performance.
