Dalian Maritime University launched a dual-purpose ship for intelligent research and practical training on Monday in Dalian, northeast China's Liaoning Province. It is the world's first research and training ship with autonomous navigation, remote control, and autonomous operation functions.  

The vessel is 69.83 meters long, 10.9 meters wide, and has a service speed of 17.5 knots. It is propelled by two all-electric pods of 1,500 kW, powered by three diesel-electric units of 1,520 kW, equipped with bow thrust and anti-roll fins, and is staffed by 50 people.  

The ship has achieved new technological breakthroughs in autonomous navigation, ship-shore coordination, and marine intelligent vessel mobile test and verification platform. The ship is equipped with a smart decision-making model based on maritime rules and navigation big data and an automatic docking system with navigation path optimization and intelligent collision avoidance functions. It can conduct autonomous navigation in the whole water area.  

In addition, the ship realizes scene reconstruction through digital twin technology, which can achieve the effect of virtual-real integration of teaching and training and has a relatively advanced intelligent teaching level.

The ship will achieve shore-based remote control within six months after delivery, carry out autonomous navigation tests under the supervision of people on board one year later, and gradually realize more advanced intelligent functions with the upgrade and iteration of intelligent system software.
