Avikus's AI-based control system makes ships to navigate safely and Autonomosly, and to diagnose a ship profile

Leading autonomous navigation
in sea

Our Mission

"World’s No.1 Next Generation Navigation Solution Provider"

Avikus is a new startup company who is specialized in autonomous navigation technology and was launched by Hyundai Heavy Industries Group, the world’s top shipbuilder.

Avikus is the etymology of “Viking” and is derived from 'Avviker', which means a person who has left for the sea. It contains the vision of becoming a leading company in the field of autonomous ship navigation.


Detection, Then Action

In the process of operating the ships, a variety of risk such as a collision with other ships or a berthing to the land may occur. It is important to detect awareness around ship and act quickly to avoid these risks.
Our AI-based control system has the ability to identify various environment and minimize the risks by providing the guidance.

Navigation Assistance System(NAS)

Computer Vision & AI based Situational Awareness

1) Unique ability to detect AIS/ARPA undetected ships
2) Powerful recognition performance based on the continuous data learning

Outstanding Target Detection

1) Data association for AIS/RADAR/camera sensor fusion
2) IR camera based detection for sea-fog & night situations

Key Information Display & Alarm in AR Visualization

1) Core navigation data display of own ship/target ship
2) Display of the collision avoidance trajectory

Berthing Assistance System(BAS)

360 deg. 3D around view system

1) Intuitive screen that allows crews to see around the ship at once
2) Zoom in/out function for a closer look at key areas
3) Monitoring for the movement of surrounding tug boats

Berthing/Unberthing Supporting

1) Important ship movement data display in AR visualization
2) Detection for the distance between ship and berth

Together at Avikus

Join our team to leading autonomous navigation technology in sea. We are looking for multi-disciplinary engineers and competent professionals that like to solve problems, seek growth and communicate to achieve the same goal.
