Shone retrofits manned ships with autonomous technologies to improve the safety, security and quality of life of the men and women who sail the seas every day and bravely fuel our global economy

Shone makes the ocean safer and friendlier, for the people who foster our global economy. They believe that artificial intelligence is the key to provide better work conditions to the amazing people who support the world's trade and prosperity. Shone's proprietary detection algorithm (based on data gathered from the ship sensors AIS, radar and GPS and added cameras on board) analyses the surrounding of the ship and predicts the behaviour of the other vessels around. The system is active 24/7 with no downtime and works in every weather situation.
