Avikus Announces Debut of Autonomous Vessel at Fort Lauderdale Boat Show
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.

Neuboat also directs the boat to dock itself, using multiple cameras and a collision-warning alarm. The Quicksilver 905 Pilothouse will be located at booth 627 in the Bahia mar Yachting Center’s Navy Zone.
Even without stabilization, the steady picture enhances nighttime navigation.
New EPIRBs and PLB also allow boaters to monitor their devices with a mobile app.
Electric power might be all the rage, but it has its limitations.
Vehicle autonomy on land has led to vessel autonomy at sea, and more practical uses for self-steering boats.
