“ The centre allows the company to more accurately communicate its capabilities. EXPERIENCE EDGE The R&A (Remote & Autonomous) Expe- rience Space includes several interactive tables on which Rolls-Royce can showcase existing and future technologies while aid- ing the development and introduction of new rules and standards for autonomous shipping. The Experience Space is the second one opened. Rolls-Royce opened the Intelligent Asset Management (IAM) Experience Space in Ålesund Norway late last year.
