Artificial intelligence (AI) is expected to play an increasingly important role in the design and operation of the next generation of green yachts.
One area where AI can be useful is in the optimization of power systems. For example, AI algorithms can be used to predict weather patterns and optimize the use of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power. They can also be used to monitor and predict battery state of charge and manage the energy consumption of onboard systems to minimize the need for fossil fuels.
AI-enabled navigation systems can also help improve the efficiency of green yachts by making use of real-time data on wind, waves, and currents to optimize the vessel’s speed and direction, reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
Another use of AI on green yachts is in the areas of autonomous operations and decision-making. For example, an autonomous system can be used to perform tasks such as docking, mooring, and anchoring, reducing the need for human crew and increasing safety.
AI can also be used for monitoring and maintenance of the yacht. For example, sensors can be used to monitor the health and performance of the yacht’s systems and provide real-time data to the AI system which can analyze this data and suggest preventive maintenance or predict and even prevent possible failures.
Overall, the integration of AI in the next generation of green yachts can lead to a more efficient, safe and sustainable operation
