From The BBC

Quote
In a sign of things to come, an autonomous boat has just made a cargo run from the UK to Belgium.

The 12m-long Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV) SEA-KIT Maxlimer crossed from West Mersea to Oostende on Monday night, carrying a box of oysters.

It relied on a range of technologies to safely navigate what is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.

The boat's owner says the trip was the first commercial crossing of the North Sea to be made by an autonomous vessel.

We're having unscrewed undergrounds in Glasgow ... should Bristol's buses start going autonomous too in order to help reduce the driver shortage?

Oysters out, beer back. I am not sure who got the better deal.

I presume that you meant uncrewed, or was it an oblique reference to management.
