Fleet of autonomous boats could service some cities, reducing road traffic
The future of transportation in waterway-rich cities such as Amsterdam, Bangkok, and Venice - where canals run alongside and under bustling streets and bridges - may include autonomous boats that ferry goods and people, helping clear up road congestion. Researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and the Senseable City Lab in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP), have taken a step toward that future by designing a fleet of autonomous boats that offer high maneuverability and precise control.
