Researchers at UAntwerp and the Port of Antwerp are testing how 3D sonar sensors can be used to improve awareness of a ship’s surroundings for autonomous shipping.
Maritime leaders from Brazil have joined together to create a cluster that will develop artificial intelligence for the maritime sector and autonomous ships.
Swedish ship propulsion optimisation experts, Lean Marine are leading a ground-breaking research and development project to accelerate the technological development, realisation, and adoption of AI-powered ship operation support technology by ship crew and management.
e5 Lab has successfully completed a large-scale proof of concept (PoC) testing on the “ROBOSHIP Joint Value Creation Project” in waters off Toyosu, Tokyo.
BMT has won the first ADMIRALTY Marine Innovation Programme challenge, which will see the consultancy firm collaborate with the UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) to develop an alpha product for the autonomous shipping sector.
A roadmap for the development of smart and autonomous sea transport systems has been unveiled.
Boston-based Sea Machines Robotics, a developer of autonomous systems for ocean-going vessels has accomplished its full $20M investment goal with a second close of $5M. The company announced the first close of $15M in July.
Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has signed a contract to conduct a joint study on collision avoidance algorithms and autonomous collision avoidance.
Dutch system integrator RH Marine has reached the first milestone in the Safer Autonomous Systems (SAS) project, a European research project in which the safety of various autonomous systems is being researched. Following a sea trial, it successfully tested a specially developed algorithm that fuses the collected data from the radar and the Automatic Identification System (AIS) of the vessel. As a result, objects are automatically detected and collisions can be avoided.
Ocean research non-profit ProMare and IBM have announced the completion and launch of the Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS) – an AI and solar powered marine research vessel which will traverse oceans gathering vital environmental data.
