Passenger Line.The system’s graphic recognition engine was developed by incorporating MOL’s knowledge and applying artificial intelligence (AI) deep learning technology, allowing it to recognize surrounding vessels.The system recognizes and automatically records vessels with high accuracy using a terminal equipped with a graphic processing unit (GPU) and ultrahigh-resolution cameras.The image recognition technology, which can

MIT’s fleet of robotic boats has been updated with new capabilities to “shapeshift,” by autonomously disconnecting and reassembling into different configurations to form various floating platforms in the canals of Amsterdam. In experiments in a pool, the boats rearranged themselves from a connected straight line into an “L” (shown here) and other shapes.

; which could be dozens — and differences between the two shapes.“We’ve enabled the roboats to now make and break connections with other roboats, with hopes of moving activities on the streets of Amsterdam to the water,” says Rus, director of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and the Andrew and Erna Viterbi Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. “A set of boats can come together to form linear shapes as pop-up bridges, if we need to send materials or people from one side of a canal to the other. Or, we can create pop-up

in-house data command center allowing our customers to truly make the most of high accuracy machine learning analysis and live 3D point clouds of their subsea structures. This enables real time, data-driven, accurate decision making.”Investing in the development of real-time 3D systems and artificial intelligence for marine robotics, the company is able to deliver 3D and deep learning based solutions. By retrofitting smart cameras to any subsea vehicle Rovco effectively gives older or smaller ROVs or autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) the ability to provide the highest quality data while connecting

Kraken's OceanVision Moving Ahead

said it believes the project could grow as additional stakeholders, technologies and products are added to the project scope.Karl Kenny, Kraken's President & CEO said, "OceanVision is a unique business model, offering a combination of sensors, underwater robots, cloud computing and artificial intelligence. Under OceanVision, clients do not need to purchase expensive data acquisition hardware and analytics. Instead, they can lease the robotic devices to acquire the ultra-high-resolution subsea data that they need. The data captured by robots across different locations can be stored in a cloud-based

New Tech for Wind Blade Inspections

having a drone or a fleet of drones that take off every day, fly around the wind turbines, do all of their inspections, and then come back and upload their data,” Paquette says. “Then the wind plant operator will come in and look through the data, which will already have been read by artificial intelligence that looks for differences in the blades from previous inspections and notes potential issues. The operator will then deploy a robotic crawler on the blade with suspected damage to get a more detailed look and plan repairs. It would be a significant advance for the industry.&rdquo
