Adaptive Perception Behaviors (APB) for smart maritime cameras

Adaptive Perception Behaviors (APB)

APB embeds intelligent behavior optimization into a maritime smart camera with a pan-tilt mount to create an autonomous camera system that can detect, classify, and track ships, as well as determine if inspection is necessary to ensure safe navigation.

“APB provides marine surface situational awareness in a single platform. APB simplifies unmanned surface vehicle design and facilitates perception hardware and behavior upgrades on USVs, making USVs more capable and adaptable.”
