Robotic Naval Shipping?

Ars ran this article about research into unmanned shipping. My question is this: which will take hold first, seafaring shipping drones, aerial shipping drones, or driverless cars? My guess would be drone ships, since they have less possibilities of interaction with the general public and would therefore be more subject to pure economic forces. They are all coming eventually, but I would also guess I won't live to see any of the above in wide use.
