The Roboat research program is a collaboration between Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS Institute).
Key milestones have been achieved regarding automation, which has been putting Roboat in the forefront of autonomous navigation worldwide, include: 100% autonomy, from dock to dock, without any human interference; multi-vessel control (every boat knows where the others are, and coordinate its position and movements accordingly); multi-vessel coordination and shape-shifting; and latching and docking capabilities.

Virtual Reality: Bridging the gap
Smart Urban Mobility
In a workshop about Virtual Reality (VR) researchers from MIT showed how this strong tool can provide new ways to create insights for research projects. MSc MADE students were shown how they can use VR to develop use cases, with Roboat as topic at hand.
