AyeAye Systems and HMP Tech Group partner on AI and DT assisted Navigation Project

Den Helder, 27th May 2024 – AyeAye Systems and HMP Tech Group are partnering on the groundbreaking “wAve-I” project, made possible by the prestigious MIT R&D subsidy. This collaborative endeavour aims to revolutionise maritime navigation through the development of a digital boat twin empowered by artificial intelligence and machine learning. 

Project Overview and Subsidy Acquisition

The “wAve-I” project sets out to create a sophisticated platform capable of visualising and predicting sea conditions with unparalleled accuracy. By harnessing a combination of local sensors, radar data, and cloud-based information, the digital boat twin will provide real-time insights into critical factors such as wave height, direction, and speed. Moreover, it will offer valuable predictions regarding the impact of navigation decisions on crucial parameters like estimated time of arrival (ETA), fuel consumption, heading, and overall sea state.
