French shipping company CMA CGM has teamed up with San Francisco-based startup Shone to embed artificial intelligence on board ships.

Through the collaboration, launched at the beginning of the year, Shone is to access the company’s vessels to finalize the development of AI aboard.

The startup, specializing in the use of artificial intelligence for maritime transportation, is thus allowed to take onboard data collection systems which are then analyzed at its headquarters in San Francisco. Once the development is finalized, this innovation will facilitate the work of crews on board, whether in decision support, maritime safety or piloting assistance.

As far as security and anti-collision alert systems are concerned, Shone fuses data from multiple sensors in order to increase detection accuracy, thus preventing potential collisions, taking into account COLREGs.

“This collaboration is fully in line with the group’s strategy of innovation at the service of digital transformation,” CMA CGM said.
