Transforming Amsterdam’s canals with a fleet of autonomous boats

February 5, 2021 Maritime Safety News

Roboat is a 5-year research project and collaboration between the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In developing the world’s first fleet of autonomous floating vessels for the city of Amsterdam, it investigates the potential of self-driving technology to change our cities and their waterways.

Roboat is a new kind of on-demand infrastructure: autonomous platforms will combine together to form floating bridges and stages, collect waste, deliver goods, and transport people, all while collecting data about the city. How can we re-imagine urban infrastructures with cutting-edge technologies? Join MIT Senseable City Lab and AMS Institute newsletters to receive news about Roboat.
