Study: AI Collison-Avoidance System Reduces Close Encounters

Israeli startup Orca AI conducted an analysis of navigation outcomes and found that close encounter events declined by 27% and sharp maneuvers decreased by 22% aboard ships using its collision avoidance system.

Orca AI’s system draws on computer vision technology, onboard infrared and visible-spectrum cameras, and advanced data processing to identify and evaluate marine traffic situations. Its shipboard nav-assist tool informs the crew of impending hazards ahead, and its ship management tool allows the home office to watch the crew’s navigation performance.

Dor Raviv, Orca AI’s CTO, said, “The masters, officers and fleet managers we worked with quickly realized that Orca AI generates a real, tangible impact, and helps to mitigate the associated costs of safety incidents, downtime and reputational damage.”
