The ferries with the new system are undergoing tests in Japan, where they make night crossings in Kobe, a city in Osaka Bay, to check the operation of the thermal night vision cameras
The British company Rolls-Royce plans to launch unmanned vessels that will operate with the help of artificial intelligence (AI) that will detect all maritime navigators, highlights a work published today.
According to the Wired portal, the technology of neural networks will be used for the AI to become familiar with the environment.
To achieve that purpose, Rolls-Royce trains its systems through five million images collected from the Internet so that artificial intelligence can distinguish different obstacles from all angles, explains the note.
The entity intends that the boats, mainly the trailers, ferries and short distance transport vessels, be completely autonomous, although they will be monitored by crews from the coast.
According to the director of marine engineering and technology of the company, Kevin Daffey, this system has many advantages. Among them, the reduction of accidents due to human error and the fact that human crews will be able to return home every night, he said.
