About Rule 5 of Maritime Navigation

When it comes to navigating the waters of the San Francisco Bay, the safety of your vessel and those around it depends heavily on having proper maritime domain awareness. Rule 5 of the maritime navigation rules states:

"Every vessel shall at all times maintain a proper lookout by sight and hearing as well as by all available means appropriate to the prevailing circumstances and conditions so as to make a full appraisal of the situation and of the risk of collision."

While today there are systems in place to help watch officers navigate and look out for critical situations, these systems rely on simple vector addition at best to project where nearby vessels are likely headed to prevent close-quarter situations. And even with these systems, accidents still happen, often resulting in collisions costing millions of dollars in damage to the vessels and the surrounding environment, as well as at the cost of human lives.

Our Mission:

Leveraging the wealth of publicly-available, historical data on maritime navigation patterns, Rule5.ai introduces the power of deep learning to more effectively tackle the problem of predicting vessels trajectories and improving maritime domain awareness.

Minimum Viable Product

  • Leverages deep learning to model vessel navigation patterns from historical AIS data
  • Generates accurate, probabilistic, and real-time projections of vessel trajectories for nearby-vessels
  • Provides an interactive, visual display showcasing the probabilistic projections of vessel trajectories in time
