Autonomous cars and aircraft aren’t enough. Seafaring vessels are getting in on the action now.
Sea Machines Robotics, a Boston-based startup, is developing technologies to bring automation to the maritime sector.
The company recently tested its autonomous boating technologies in the waters of Boston Harbor.
Sea Machines said it foresees the autonomous marine industry expanding to a $60 billion space.
“The transition of one of the world’s oldest forms of transportation to an autonomous operation is inevitable and necessary,” said Michael Johnson, Sea Machine’s founder. “Sea Machines provides system that give real and immediate value to vessel operators by increasing safety and efficiency. And our technology will facilitate entirely new oceanic applications, enabling better use of the seas to accommodate a growing world.”
