Autonomy, Safety and Control represent the triumvirate of capabilities that together enable functionality such as the safe, controlled automation of surface vessels via a hybrid AI whilst delivering bandwidth-friendly actionable information ashore for use by authorities to monitor the safety performance of the vessel.
Layered functionality is provided by deterministic rulesets, i.e. COLREGS, SOLAS etc together with environmental information from Weather (via IBM Weather) and Depth of water which together deliver constraints. These constraints enable the AI agent to maintain a safe course and speed.
The system achieves performance and stability through the use of IBM Power hardware architecture.
The modular approach provides scalability to encompass additional customer-specific analytics and visualisation capabilities as required.
