Routing is an important, foundational element of the maritime technology stack. It's what powers distance tables, voyage planning all the way to weather routing and forms the basis for many commercial decisions. We feel that the maritime industry can benefit tremendously from more advanced technology in this area, so we went out and built it.
Aquaplot is built on top of a proprietary technology that is inspired by how humans work together in teams. We call it EvoSwarm. It takes proven concepts of nature-inspired artificial intelligence to the next level.
EvoSwarm works directly on vector data and does not rely on historical data for routing. It practically solves the routing problem the same way a human would by looking at the same kind of data (the map) - only more accurate, in milliseconds and of course it never get's tired.
EvoSwarm can perform a better job at today's tasks. Maybe more importantly, it can enable more uses that benefit the industry going forward. It is designed and engineered to be the most flexible and scalable solution in existance, enabling simulations at unprecedented scale. Our goal is to track every single commercial vessel and forecast it's movements into the future. This can be used for example for ETA calculation, traffic management or trading.
