Lifewire reports that robot boats could soon take passengers for a ride, no sailing skills required.
Two key article takeaways:
- There’s growing interest in the possibilities of robot boats.
- Robot boats could be more fuel-efficient and safer than traditional boats.
Lifewire writes, “There’s a growing interest in autonomous boats, mirroring the burgeoning field of autonomous land vehicles. Sea Machines Robotics, for example, is working on technology that will provide autonomous ships to commercial operators and recreational users. Moran David, the company’s chief commercial officer, told Lifewire:
‘The immediate impact is in reducing risk, improving fuel efficiency, and on-time arrival. Unlike humans, AI never gets fatigued, distracted, or overwhelmed by processing a large amount of data simultaneously.'”
