First Autonomous Ship named Mayflower to cross Atlantic

First Autonomous Ship named Mayflower to cross Atlantic

The program manager Brett Phaneuf says “With this project, we are pioneering a cost-effective and flexible platform for gathering data that will help safeguard the health of the ocean and the industries it supports.”

The vessel will carry three research pods containing an array of sensors and scientific instrumentation. MAS will be able to recognise hazards such as buoys, debris and other ships thanks to RADAR, AIS (Automated Identification Systems) and LIDAR – the same technology used in autonomous cars.
