We have now set up the links to the live streams for the events during Njord - The Autonomous Ship Challenge 2021. The events will be streamed live on Youtube, and here you will be able to interact with us and ask questions during the events. We have three main events: the first event is the main competition where all simulations of the teams' systems will be put to test and showcased. The three main categories being evaluated is situational awareness, collision avoidance and docking. The second event is the Inspirational talks at Havet Arena in Trondheim together with Kongsberg Maritime, AUTOSHIP, Zeabuz and NTNU. The third event is the prize ceremony on Thursday where we will crown the winners of the Challenge. The winners will receive $2.800 for their effort which we believe will come in handy for next year's Challenge. Second and third place receives respectively $1.700 and $1.100.
Event 1: Competition day 1 Wednesday 18th of August
09.30: Meet the teams
10.45 -12.15: All technical events

Event 2: Inspirational talk - Wednesday 18th of August
We are excited to invite you all to our event at Havet Arena in Trondheim, Norway. The event will start at 17.30 and last until 19.15. The event is open for everyone who would like to participate. The event will also be streamed live for those who are not able to be in Trondheim. All NTNU students coming to Havet Arena to watch the event there will receive a drink coupon, and all(not only NTNU students) will get free pizza. Five participants on the stream will win a goodie bag of Norwegian specialties.
In the inspirational talk we will learn more about the latest developments within marine autonomy. Øyvind Smogeli will shed light on how Zeabuz and NTNU are working to accelerate development by developing a purpose-built simulation platform for autonomous vessels, and how it can help build trust amongst the general public.
Kongsberg Maritime and Autoship, represented by Morten Skogvold, will offer a deeper insight into some of the emerging technologies within marine autonomy. In addition to this, we will hear about how KM and Autoship are approaching the challenges of marine autonomy, and how they envision the future of the industry.
