    International USV operator XOCEAN has recently adopted Marine AI’s ‘GUARDIAN Vision’ Artificial Intelligence software to enhance its Uncrewed Surface Vessels (USVs) situational awareness. Using USVs, XOCEAN provides a safe, economic and carbon neutral solution to ocean data collection to multiple industries such as Offshore Wind.

    The 'GUARDIAN Vision’ package, provides "bandwidth-friendly’!actionable information.

    ‘GUARDIAN Vision’ enhances the USVs’ land-based teams’ situational awareness by analysing the on-board camera feeds to detect and classify hazards and provide positional information on these hazards to the on-board control system and the remote pilot. This allows data transfer volumes to be reduced and delivers significant data and operational cost savings.

    “Marine AI’s ‘GUARDIAN Vision’ Artificial Intelligence software is used to enhance our USVs situational awareness” said Andrew Carlisle, Chief Technical Officer, XOCEAN. “We are impressed with the product performance and customer service we have experienced since working with Marine AI”.

    “Our ‘GUARDIAN Vision’ package is the first stage of Marine AI’s modular system. Our software provides scalability to meet higher levels of autonomy and control. This ‘GUARDIAN Autonomy’ package, installed on the Mayflower Autonomous Vessel (mas400.com), provides our uncrewed vessel with a COLREG-compliant fully autonomous capability,” said Matthew Rattsey, MD of Marine AI.
