Image recognition is a relatively new development in the maritime sector. It is increasingly applied for collecting information, automatic sailing or to prevent accidents from happening. The detection of maritime objects is possible with a variation of sensors such as color or 360 camera images, radar, LiDAR, thermal, multi-beam and sonar data. For example we can detect the status of vessels within harbors, or automatically map certain routes and directions. For image recognition, it doesn’t matter if its yachts, sloops, fisher boats or even recreational vessels, not a single object will sail past our detection. We can make specific measurements under and above water in lakes, canals, rivers and the sea. To show some of the possibilities of image recognition on a normal image with the use of artificial intelligence we have made an online demo where you can test a certain image to see how the standard algorithm works for different vessels within the sea, inland and fishing maritime sectors.
