Coming soon: The virtual copilot at your side
Navigating with unparalleled situational awareness
As an autonomous pilot assist system, mtu NautIQ CoPilot is our most advanced autonomous system, using digital marine sensors, embedded electronic charts, advanced autonomous algorithms and broad-area
computer vision to support human-manual vessel operations with enhanced real-time understanding of objects, obstructions and traffic. In essence, it acts as a virtual onboard copilot at your side.
Choose from three operating modes
mtu NautIQ CoPilot consists of an onboard processing unit, camera system and processor, and user interface touch screen. Depending on the mission, mtu NautIQ CoPilot allows operators to choose between three data-driven automated vessel navigation modes – Guide, Guard and Voyage.
Guide Mode – visual indication and audible alert of potential transit conflicts with vessels or other obstacles as well as low depth. No active control.
Guard Mode – visual indication and audible alert of potential conflicts, giving operators signal to act. If no action is taken, the system takes over control to avoid dangerous situations.
Voyage Mode – autonomous control of a planned voyage from start to finish with many built-in behaviors and features specially developed to support a diverse set of on-water operations.
Autonomous command at your control
Operating under the command and in complete accordance with the mission plan of the onboard crew, mtu NautIQ CoPilot provides multiple benefits to operators:
- Enhanced situational awareness through sensor fusion and visual AI
- Navigation assistance or full autonomous command (3 modes)
- Reduced crew fatigue by being freed from routine tasks
- Voice command
mtu NautIQ CoPilot offers a broad spectrum of applications for customized autonomous command and control. Here are some examples:
