Re: Two steps from Rosie
Wow! I wasn't aware of this tracking site. I would expect fuel savings to be one of the primary drivers for tracking data this way.

Re: Two steps from Rosie
It does seem entirely within current capabilities to have autonomous ship movement. An interesting website allows anyone to track commercial and private ships using their onboard location devices (marinetraffic.com) and gather all sorts of information including speed, course, and destination. I do wonder if they're working on fuel savings as I would guess that's one of the biggest shipping expenses.

Two steps from Rosie
I'm not sure we're ready for self-driving ships. How do they intend to keep a ship on course should they veer off on the way to the proper part of the port?

I think housework bots like Rosie are just around the corner...
