Avikus, HD Hyundai’s autonomous navigation in-house startup, will participate in the 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) from 26 to 30 October.
The company will introduce and showcase Neuboat, an autonomous phase-two navigation solution for leisure boats leveraging the power of the Avikus Navigation Assistant System (NAS) and Docking Assistant System (DAS).
Avikus NAS allows a boat to recognise and assess on-water situations in real time and without human intervention through deep learning and sensor fusion algorithms.
As data is processed, NAS creates and maintains an optimal route for safe autonomous navigation, allowing boaters to enjoy their time on the water without the stress of vessel operation.
It also allows users to experience the autonomous navigation process through an Augmented Reality screen, which indicates risk level using different colour informational boxes. For convenience, boaters can also control navigation with a mobile device.
Avikus DAS technology applies an integrated cognitive system allowing a boat to dock by itself. Docking can be one of the most difficult driving skills for boaters and is recognised as high-risk for accidents.
Using the Avikus 3D surround view system and collision warning alarm, included with the solution, users can effortlessly deal with all situations that may occur while docking.
At FLIBS, in the Avikus booth #627 located in Bahia Mar Yachting Center’s Navy Zone, visitors can experience the company’s autonomous navigation and docking solutions.
Those in attendance can also inspect hardware components such as the computer system, camera and display that make autonomous navigation possible.
Avikus will also host live demonstrations of autonomous cruising with its Neuboat solution at The Port Marina, located just off the 17th street causeway across from the Broward Convention Center.
Application will be required to participate, limited to Boat OEMs and electronics manufacturers.
