Safety First at Watertaxi Rotterdam with Captain AI’s Collision Warning System

Watertaxi Rotterdam, in partnership with Captain AI, has taken another step towards enhancing the safety of their water taxis. The focus here is on preventing collisions and ensuring a safe journey for everyone on board.

With the help of Captain AI’s advanced AI-based radar tracker combined with AIS data, other ships are automatically detected, tracked, and their behavior predicted. This innovation provides timely warnings for potential collisions, enabling watertaxi captains to respond more quickly and efficiently.

Real-Time Insights via Captain AI Cloud: Fleet managers now have access to real-time data from sensors installed on board. This means they can not only monitor their fleet better, but also offer targeted training to their captains in the future.

The project is currently in a test phase and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2024. In the video several test runs can be seen, including the detection of a vessel that is sailing without AIS signal, but is detected with our AI-based Radar Tracker. The radar used is a Simard Halo 20.
