HotTechGO is developing an intelligent self-driving system for an environmentally-friendly unmanned surface vehicle (USV) that is powered by wind and solar energy. This hybridises conventional sail navigation technologies and AI algorithms to allow automated navigational tasks. Other advantages include low maintenance and the ability to go on long cruises. This USV is ideal for cost-effective data conveying to enable cellular network off the shore. It is also competitive for delivery of supplies and applications in water sampling, ocean surveying activities.
