Autonomous ‘Roboats’ Navigate Amsterdam Canals

See how Autonomous “Roboats” used sensor data to navigate through the crowded waterways of the Amsterdam canals.

“We now have higher precision and robustness in the perception, navigation, and control systems, including new functions, such as close-proximity approach mode for latching capabilities, and improved dynamic positioning, so the boat can navigate real-world waters,” says Daniela Rus , MIT professor of electrical engineering and computer science and director of CSAIL.
