Avikus, HD Hyundai’s autonomous navigation startup based in South Korea, has announced that it will debut a Neuboat concept vessel at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show, Oct. 26-30. The leisure craft leverages the power of the Avikus Navigation Assistant System and Docking Assistant System.

Neuboat uses cameras, GPS, radar and lidar (laser imaging) as well as an integrated cognitive system that allows the vessel to recognize and assess on-water situations in real-time through deep learning and sensor-fusion algorithms. Captains onboard can also view the navigation process through an augmented-reality screen and control navigation from anywhere on the vessel with a mobile device.
