Rolls-Royce and Sea Machines Robotics announced a collaboration that will deliver remote command, autonomous control and intelligent crew support systems to the marine market.
amely, Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems and Sea Machines will join forces on the development and sale of fully and semi-autonomous vessel control systems.
Michael Johnson, CEO and founder of Sea Machines, said:
Autonomous systems take over routine efforts, reduce stress for crews and thus increase operational predictability and safety. The technology makes shipping more productive, economical and contributes to more sustainable operations
The cooperation will also focus on products for remote and autonomous vessel control and situational awareness, primarily for yachts, commercial and government vessels.
The two companies will also work together to develop new capabilities to provide customers with advanced total solutions that aggregate and analyze all vessel data and intelligently control vessels based on this information.
