An autonomous ship crossing the Atlantic from England to the US unmanned


The new Mayflower is an autonomous ship that will follow the same route as the ship that crossed the Atlantic in 1640

Mayflower, that's what the

autonomous ship

to navigate guided by

artificial intelligence

(IA) and that

cross the Atlantic without captain or crew

in September of this year.

The project

 It has been developed by the American multinational IBM and the marine research organization

Promare

.

As reported by the company, sea trials of the AI ??system, which acts as the ship's captain, has begun today in preparation for the traverse. The trial, carried out in Plymouth, UK, will assess how the ship uses

on-board cameras and distributed cloud computing systems

to navigate safely.

A Mayflower with artificial intelligence

The ship gets its name because

will do the original Mayflower route from 1620

to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the famous trip. Sail from Plymouth (UK) to Plymouth (Massachusetts, USA) and become the first fully autonomous, full-size vessel to cross the Atlantic,

mark the company

.

These tests will help determine

how the autonomous captain develops in maritime scenarios

from the real world and provide relevant information to further refine ship learning models.

The tests will run over approximately three months with a human captain at the helm. Later, in the month of May, new tests will be started to assess the full autonomy of the new boat.
