CMA CGM working with start-up to bring AI on board ships

The CMA CGM Group continues its drive towards innovation and greater digitalization with its collaboration with San Francisco-based start-up specializing in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) for maritime transportation, Shone.

The collaboration, which has been going on since the beginning of the year, gives Shone access to the group’s vessels where they gather data from onboard systems which are then analysed at their headquarters in San Francisco.

This will help in the development of onboard AI systems for CMA CGM’s container ships which is expected to assist crews in areas such as decision support, maritime safety as well as piloting assistance.

Shone is also working on developing security and anti-collision alert systems for the group, Shone will combine data from multiple sensors such as radar, camera and ships’ automatic identification system (AIS), among others, in order to increase detection accuracy. This is aimed at preventing potential collisions while also taking into account international collision regulations (COLREGs).

This collaboration is fully in line with the group's strategy of innovation at the service of digital transformation implemented by CMA CGM group chairman and ceo Rodolphe Saadé.

Shone was set up in 2017 by three French engineers. The young start-up wants to bring the AI systems already present in the automotive sector on board ships, and aims to become the market leader for maritime AI systems.
