STeP Talks 15 March 2024

This March STeP Talks is presenting another exciting event titled “Legal aspects of unmanned ships and self-driving cars”.

During this seminar we have Welmoed van der Velde (maritime lawyer who works as a professor in applied sciences (lector) at NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences) and Ming Cao (a professor of networks and robotics with the Engineering and Technology Institute (ENTEG) at the University of Groningen) as our guest speakers joined by Nynke Vellinga (STeP research group at University of Groningen).

During this event, our speakers will discuss the latest developments in regulating unmanned ships, learn about the particularities of the maritime world and discover parallels and differences between (regulating) ships and other modes of (unmanned) transport as similar legal questions and challenges are relevant in relation to self-driving cars. Additionally, they will also explore how the two fields can supplement each other.
