"Autonomous drone technology is an area in rapid development. There are many positive aspects of using this technology in offshore industries where the cost of manual labour is very high,” says Associate Professor Erdal Kayacan, Aarhus University, who is one of those working to develop new intelligent technologies for the maritime sector.

The potential of autonomous solutions for offshore operations in the maritime sector is huge. The Danish drone company Upteko is collaborating with researchers from Aarhus University to develop next-generation drone technologies and artificial intelligence for everything from rescue operations to 3D scans and inspections of entire ships.

"Super optimized wind farms will be a major step towards the green transition," says Associate Professor Mahdi Abkar, an expert in fluid dynamics and turbulence at the Department of Mechanical and Production Engineering, Aarhus University.
