A ship that sails itself
Captain AI is developing the world’s first safe fully autonomous shipping solution. We combines high-fidelity simulation with cutting-edge sensors and state-of-the-art deep learning techniques.
High fidelity simulator
We use Nautis, a high-fidelity simulator from Vstep, to test and validate our code before we test it in the real world. This makes quick iterations possible while saving on emissions, fuel costs and other resources.
We are building a pipeline for fully automatic data collection and labeling. We do this in order to create dependable predictions of the behavior of vessels and other factors. We use the latest AI models for object detection, image classification and instance segmentation to create comprehensive situational awareness
For data visualization of 3D scenes, plots and sensor dat we have built Atlantis, our scalable cloud infrastructure solution. We generate optimal and real time paths by processing terabytes of data.
We use a variety of inputs for our sensor fusion algorithm. We make use of radar, cameras, GPS, octons, sonar and AIS already installed on most vessels.
We have access to three vessels in the port of Rotterdam: The RT Borkum, a tugboat from Kotug International, Watertaxi 14 from Watertaxi Rotterdam and the RPA3 a patrol vessel from the Port of Rotterdam Authority. We test our software on a regular basis in the busiest port in Europe.
Safety & security
Autonomous shipping can only be realised if optimal safety, redundancy and security are prime focus points. We work closely together with the Port of Rotterdam Authority and Rijkswaterstaat and work with the highest security and safety standards.
