In its March/April issue, Maritime Review magazine shared a Sea Machines article that explains the difference between marine autonomy and autopilot systems. The story shares details about the primary advantages of autonomous marine technology over autopilot, which at a glance include:

  • Obstacle detection and collision avoidance on the water
  • Automatic adjustment of vessel behavior between waypoints through all sea conditions
  • Integration with on-board vessel systems, such as AIS data, radar and on-board cameras
  • Optional human control of vessels
