Norwegian shipping company, Torghatten AS Stockholm is launching the world’s first self-driving commercial passenger ferry in Sweden in June 2023.

The electric passenger ferry will operate between the Stockholm islands of Kungsholmen and Södermalm to offer a convenient and sustainable urban mobility solution.

Initially, an operator will remain onboard the ferry to ensure a smooth crossing.

Reidun Svarva, Chief Business Development Officer at Torghatten said:

Many large cities around the world have problems with congestion, lack of capacity and environmental and air pollution. Self-driving technology will be part of the solution and will be good for both the climate and people.

Instead of being barriers, the water surfaces will sew the city together and become a shortcut for all Stockholmers.

This deployment was enabled by research at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim. Based on the results, a new company, Zeabuz was founded for which Torghatten AS is a co-owner.
