M Subs Ltd provides AI-powered situational awareness technology to unmanned vessels in the Plymouth Sound harbour
Plymouth Sound has been equipped with advanced sensor systems powered by AI and machine learning technology. According to M Subs Ltd, the company has installed the technology, that includes cameras, sensors, radars and machine learning systems to analyse the data gathered, to improve unmanned vehicles's situational awareness and navigation. The project's partners include the Plym Yacht Club, Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club, the Queen’s Harbor Master as well as Thales.
"M Subs Ltd has announced it has installed a ‘game changing’ sensor system with connected artificial intelligence (AI) machine-learning technology around Plymouth Sound as part of the vision to turn the city into a center of excellence in maritime autonomy and unmanned vehicles.
Plymouth-based M Subs will operate a secure network of cameras, radars, and other sensors which will provide situational awareness and communications with the unmanned vehicles operating out of the city’s harbor.
The system will also provide the command & control of unmanned vehicles using the nearby ranges at sea. Data from the network is being collected and analyzed by machine learning programs by M Subs’ growing AI team, with the assistance of Thales and a global and corporate partner leading in the field of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
The results of this work will finalize development of the computing system at the heart of the maritime AI system to navigate the Mayflower Autonomous Ship across the Atlantic Ocean in celebration of the 400th anniversary of the original Mayflower sailing in 1620.
M Subs is working with partners at the Plym Yacht Club, the Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club, the Queen’s Harbor Master, and of course Thales."
