French container shipping line CMA CGM announced its collaboration, since the beginning of the year, with Shone, a San Francisco-based startup that specializes in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) for maritime transportation.

This collaboration enables Shone to access CMA CGM’s vessels to finalize the development of artificial intelligence systems on board container ships.

Thus, CMA CGM allows Shone to take onboard data collection systems which are then analyzed at the startup’s headquarters in San Francisco in the U.S.

“Once the development is finalized, this innovation will facilitate the work of crews on board, whether in decision support, maritime safety or piloting assistance,” said CMA CGM in an emailed release.

Regarding security and anti-collision alert systems, Shone fuses data from multiple sensors, such as radars, cameras, and automatic identification systems, in order to increase detection accuracy, thus preventing potential collisions, taking into account the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972 (COLREGs).

COLREGs are published by the International Maritime Organization and set out, among other things, the “rules of the road” or navigation rules to be followed by ships and other vessels at sea to prevent collisions.

This collaboration is fully in line with the group’s strategy of innovation through digital transformation, said the liner shipping company.

Founded by three French engineers in 2017, Shone is a young startup that is working to introduce AI, which is already present in cars, on board ships.
