Shipping Japanese companies began to cooperate with companies to build ships for the development of self - navigation cargo ships.
And make use of "smart ships" techniques of artificial intelligence in order to determine the shortest shipping routes and the most secure and efficient fuel, and could enter service by 2025.
It also will use artificial intelligence to predict failures that may occur and other problems, which may reduce accidents Navy.

It is expected that the cost of developing this technology billion Japanese yen.
Collaborating companies "Mitsui or SK Lines" and "Nippon Yusen" for charging with companies to build ships, including "the Japanese Navy", in order to share the costs and the exchange of experiences in this project, according to the newspaper "Nikkei , " the Japanese said.
Company "Nippon Yusen" and is already working on the development of technology helps ships to use the data to assess the risks of collision, is also collaborating with the Marine "DNA in the GL" Norwegian to collect and analyze data on the status of the ship and its performance.
Working "United Japanese Navy" company to develop a system similar to the analysis of data in order to detect faults before they occur.
It will be on board the first group of these smart ships a small crew, to oversee specific operations. But there are plans to develop a fully self - driving ships in the future.
The company "Rolls - Royce" announced in 2016 plans to develop cargo ships unmanned, ranging from remotely managed so that ships enter service by 2020 at the earliest.
Said Oscar Aanitr, deputy head of the Maritime Innovation department at Rolls - Royce, then in a statement that "this is going to happen. It 's only a matter of time."
"We will see a ship working after the intervention of commercial use by the end of the decade."
He also said that navigational activities and basic operations will become a mechanism, it will continue while the "captain" is on the mainland tasks "take decisive decisions" to enhance the safety of ships.
