Based on the world record nomination from Europe Records Institute (EURI) and Decision No. WK/USA.INDIA/860/2022/No.316, World Records Union (WorldKings) officially declared The Mayflower 400 as the world's first artificial intelligence managed vessel to sail on a transatlantic voyage on June 14th, 2022.
The Mayflower 400 is the world’s first artificial intelligence managed vessel to sail on a transatlantic voyage. It track aquatic mammals, analyze plastic in the water, and study marine pollution. It is a 15-m-long trimaran that weighs 9 tons.
The ship, equipped with a smart captain, six high-tech cameras and radars, has been trained with audio data to avoid collisions, correct its course, detect marine animals, and gather information of the population of the aquatic animals.
The ship can also listen to whales with a self-activating hydrophone. Currently, the ship is trained to handle 50 meters high waves. Mayflower 400 autonomous ship provides an edge to the scientists in exploring the rough seas as the ship will be unmanned.
