MIT CSAIL is taking autonomous mobility to the waters by creating autonomous boats that would transport cargo and passengers across waterways. Roboat II uses the same technologies as self-driving cars to maneuver canals and uses 4 propellers that help move the boat in the right direction. Future plans of the Roboat II is to create autonomous Roboats that would carry 4 to 6 passengers. Learn more at News.MIT.edu
Transcript: Your next boat ride could be autonomous. MIT CSAIL is developed an autonomous boat called Roboat II. The mission is to create a fleet of self-driving boats. That can carry 4 to 6 passengers the concept uses similar tech found in self-driving cars. 4 propellers power Roboat.
