Sea Machines builds Autonomous Control & Remote Command Systems to upgrade the operation of existing or new build marine vessels. Our technology can be used for unmanned piloting of vessels to improve productivity and efficiency as well as safe operations in hazardous environments.
Sea Machines’ Autonomous Control System for work boats uses common vessel-based instruments and proprietary algorithms to give the watercraft a degree of self-awareness, enabling the boat to efficiently self-motor from point-to-point while avoiding active & passive obstacles or collaborate in tandem with another vessel. The system links to all on-board propulsion, steering, and thrust machinery for active vessel control as well as necessary instruments and sensors. A remote user interface is provided for command and control as well as data reception from the autonomous vessel.
Sea Machines’ proprietary industrial control architecture that is specially-developed with robustness and reliability, absolutes for hard-working vessels. Standardized with pilot-ready navigation and common task algorithms. With built-in middleware to accept 3rd party software plug ins for payload control and data collection.
