Abstract: This survey paper briefly describes how ship automation was developed in Norway as a joint effort of research institutes, industrial companies and the shipping companies and organizations. The survey does not cover all industrial activities but mainly those which have been the result of grants from The Royal Norwegian Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (NTNF). The survey covers these activities, beginning with the efforts to obtain unmanned machinery space operation by means of conventional instrumentation and ending up with sophisticated computer-based systems for navigation and engine room applications.
