Sea Machines Robotics / The Power of Marine Autonomy 300 Control Systems


Sea Machines builds Autonomous Control & Remote Command Systems to upgrade the operation of  build marine vessels, improving the productivity and efficiency.

Sea Machines’ Autonomous System for uses common vessel-based instruments and proprietary algorithms to give the watercraft a degree of self-awareness, enabling the boat to efficiently self-motor from point-to-point while avoiding active & passive obstacles. The system links to all on-board propulsion, steering, and thrust machinery for active vessel as well as necessary instruments and sensors. A remote user interface is provided for command and control as well as data reception from the autonomous vessel.


• Control by means of self-rule PC or joystick

• Intuitive UI for remote administrator

• Payload and stream-from-send information

• Communication, by means of viewable pathway or into the great beyond
