Brunswick Corp. announced that it formed a partnership with Carnegie Robotics.
Brunswick said in a statement that the alliance combines its ACES (autonomy, connectivity, electrification and shared access) strategy with Carnegie’s expertise in autonomous technology to create driver assistance and autonomous solutions that improve the boating experience.
“This partnership, in addition to other investments we have made to support our ACES strategy, will augment our internal capability to develop solutions that advance our autonomy stack in critical areas such as applied sensor technology, computer vision and machine learning, product architecture definition, functional safety and artificial intelligence,” Brunswick CEO Dave Foulkes said in the statement.
Carnegie’s robotics products sense and detect objects, and use artificial intelligence for mission planning, mapping, object classification and vessel-motion planning.
“We pride ourselves in solving the hard problems and couldn’t be happier to partner with Brunswick,” said John Bares, Carnegie Robotics CEO. “We will push each other to develop and deploy differentiating products.”
