ABS pilots AI for corrosion detection

A pilot project applying artificial intelligence (AI) models to detect levels of corrosion and coating breakdown on ships and offshore structures has been successfully demonstrated by ABS, Google Cloud and SoftServe.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The project proved high accuracy of AI in detecting and assessing structural anomalies commonly found during visual inspection. AI techniques could be further used to analyse images over time to understand corrosion and coating breakdown trends.

“Digital innovation in AI will change how surveys and maintenance strategies are executed, driving more condition-based approaches to class and maintenance,” said ABS chairman, president and CEO, Christopher J. Wiernicki. “We are building a future in which digital tools can remotely assess the condition of a ship or offshore unit, and automatically detect and measure coating breakdown and other structural issues, improving safety and reliability.”

"We are excited to team with Google Cloud and SoftServe to effectively apply AI technology to the marine and offshore industries," said ABS deputy chief digital officer, Kashif Mahmood. “By combining our deep domain experience in offshore and marine structures with Google Cloud’s extensive knowledge of AI applications and SoftServe’s development capabilities, we were able to take this idea from concept to reality.”{/mprestriction}

    International USV operator XOCEAN has recently adopted Marine AI’s ‘GUARDIAN Vision’ Artificial Intelligence software to enhance its Uncrewed Surface Vessels (USVs) situational awareness. Using USVs, XOCEAN provides a safe, economic and carbon neutral solution to ocean data collection to multiple industries such as Offshore Wind.

    The 'GUARDIAN Vision’ package, provides "bandwidth-friendly’!actionable information.

    ‘GUARDIAN Vision’ enhances the USVs’ land-based teams’ situational awareness by analysing the on-board camera feeds to detect and classify hazards and provide positional information on these hazards to the on-board control system and the remote pilot. This allows data transfer volumes to be reduced and delivers significant data and operational cost savings.

    “Marine AI’s ‘GUARDIAN Vision’ Artificial Intelligence software is used to enhance our USVs situational awareness” said Andrew Carlisle, Chief Technical Officer, XOCEAN. “We are impressed with the product performance and customer service we have experienced since working with Marine AI”.

    “Our ‘GUARDIAN Vision’ package is the first stage of Marine AI’s modular system. Our software provides scalability to meet higher levels of autonomy and control. This ‘GUARDIAN Autonomy’ package, installed on the Mayflower Autonomous Vessel (mas400.com), provides our uncrewed vessel with a COLREG-compliant fully autonomous capability,” said Matthew Rattsey, MD of Marine AI.
