Autonomous boat “bridge” proposed in Amsterdam

A group of autonomous vessel developers is proposing a new way to move people through the unique urban-aquatic environment of Amsterdam. A small fleet of autonomous, electric boats (Roboats) is being designed to travel between the Marineterrein area and the city center, including the busy NEMO science museum. The potential use of autonomous technology here serves the dual purposes of increasing the accessibility of the area, by reducing the walk time by ten minutes, and showcasing this leading-edge technology.
