Remote Control and Remote Risk of Liability? – Vicarious Liability for Remotely Controlled Vessels in Scandinavian and English Law

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch

The implementation of unmanned vessels will evidently come with its own legal challenges. One of the most crucial of these is the identification of the role and status of the shore-based controller (SBC) for the purposes of determining liability. Different liability regimes apply different legal principles in this regard. This article will explore these issues from the perspective of English law and Scandinavian law.
