One Sea has welcomed intelligent navigation solutions provider, Orca AI, as the newest member of the growing international association representing stakeholders across the autonomous shipping sector.
Orca AI, headquartered in Tel Aviv, provides a fully automated look-out for the bridge, advancing situational awareness on board and ensuring safe and efficient shipping operations. The company’s AI and computer vision-driven platform also provides fleet managers and operators greater visibility into fleet operations via real-time alerts and identifies risk trends which require action.
Sinikka Hartonen, Secretary General of One Sea, said: “Orca AI delivers cutting-edge technology to the maritime transport sector and I’m very pleased to welcome the company to the One Sea Association. Over the last 12-months we have welcomed several new members and experienced an increase in the number of companies expressing an interest in joining One Sea as we continue to work with industry partners to address regulatory challenges and advance the development of autonomous maritime transport systems.”
Dor Raviv, Chief Technology Officer at Orca AI, said: “Powered by AI, our solutions provide the captain and crew with enhanced automated target detection and prioritisation capabilities in congested waters and low visibility conditions, helping to eliminate human error and maximise voyage safety and operational efficiencies.
“While AI is powering tangible progress in shipping operations, a collaborative approach is critical for the industry in order to secure the full benefits available from autonomous ship technology. One Sea is helping to ensure the industry’s voice is heard in developing global safety standards for autonomous ship operations and we look forward to working with the Association and its members to advance our vision to improve safety and operational efficiencies using intelligent automated vessel technologies.”
