Artificial Intelligence Recognition and Identification System


AI-ris is a camera based computer vision sensor that provides comprehensive situational awareness at sea.

With the capability to optically detect, track, classify and geolocate surface targets, AI-ris offers mariners a new perspective of visualizing and tracking the environment.

How does it work ?

Using a single camera, AI-ris ingests 4K imagery and processes it in real time with embedded Sea Machines software.

Targets on and below the horizon are illuminated and classified using a powerful AI/ML model that has been built on a database of imagery.

The user can select guard zone preferences for warning and alerts, and can even record the tracked data.

AI-ris can also work at night, in low light conditions with infrared and night modes.


Why do you need it ?

Conventional sensors miss tracking and alerting of many important events and situations which AI-ris can detect.

AI-ris offers clarity with its processed and augmented first person view of the environment, which allows for immediate understanding of situation as opposed to looking at a 2D top down representation.

Difficulty navigating an area with debris in the water ? AI-ris will illuminate small objects within 500m.

Have a near miss with another vessel ? You can now record the video, and the streaming coordinates and position of the other craft relative ownship.

AI-ris serves as a supplement and a back up to marine radar.
