Ground breaking autonomous ship uses critical sensors combined with AI

Gill Instruments compact weather station is among the critical sensors on board the ground breaking autonomous ship, MAS400

 

The Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS400), using ground breaking AI technology, will be launching from Plymouth UK on its inaugural voyage. It will self-direct, without any crew, using information provided from an array of sensors. We’re proud to confirm that one critical sensor is Gill MaxiMet GMX500, advanced compact weather station. To find out more about the project and how the on-board weather station is being used, please see the Application Note and project links below:
