A history of innovation.
Surface vessels – aka: ships or boats – have a deep history in innovative technology dating back to 3100 B.C. Shipbuilding requires precision, collaborative team-work and creativity. When RoboBoat students build their Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs) they rely on good hull design, propulsion, safety and energy optimization from great boat-builders of the past, while fine-tuning vision systems, acoustics and communication for the future.
Not just for drones & cars.
Autonomy is a word we hear more than ever, from “self-driving” cars to package-delivering drones. But what many don’t know, is that autonomous technology in maritime vehicles have pre-dated those expensive self-parking cars for years, and the results have kept our coastlines safe and our ports efficient.
