MOL's vessel image recognition system begins trials

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) and SenseTime Japan have introduced a new vessel image recognition and recording system that will be installed and tested onboard the cruise ship "Nippon Maru" operated by Mitsui O.S.K. Passenger Line.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The system’s graphic recognition engine applies artificial intelligence (AI) deep learning technology, allowing it to recognise surrounding vessels. The system recognises 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 be used at night or during other periods of poor visibility, can detect small vessels that are not recognisable by vessel automatic identification systems (AIS). According to MOL, advanced image recognition is an underlying technology needed for automated watch-keeping.

As the system automatically records image data, MOL plans to carefully review the accumulated data and use it to further enhance the image recognition engine’s analysis accuracy. {/mprestriction}
