Developing A COLREGS-Compliant Autonomous Navigation System

This presentation delivered by Nigel Lee of Robosys Automation will review a +20-year journey to develop a maritime autonomous navigation system (ANS) for USVs.

From an obstacle avoidance algorithm first developed for the NASA Mars Rover to real-life and simulated autonomous navigation and collision avoidance trials, it has proved its COLREGs compliance from Canada to Australia.

With Indian Register of Shipping class society certification for its Voyager AI software on board an uncrewed 30m tug. Robosys is now working with integrated bridge system (IBS) manufacturers to develop a bridge-based collision avoidance decision aid (CADA) for lean crewed ships to improve safety in complex navigational waters.
