Berthing Assistant


Degree 1

A Pilot commands several tugboats simultaneously for berthing and unberthing.

HiBAS shows a top view image converted from input images recorded by multiple bird-eye cameras installed around the ship. So, real-time vessel around view technology will improve berthing and unberthing safety.

Autonomous Ship

Now, we research and develop and commercialize degree 1 & 2 autonomous navigation solutions (Assistant system).

In addition to this, we continue to research and develop degree 3&4 solutions (Autonomous system).


Like autonomous car, according to IMO, autonomous ship divides into 4 degrees.

  • Watch/Monitoring
  • Control/Operation
  • Driver responsibility
  • System Control/Driver responsibility
  • System responsibility
Assistant system
  • Degree 1 icon

    Ship with automated processes and decision support

  • Degree 2 icon

    Remotely controlled ship with seafarers on board

Autonomous system
  • Degree 3 icon

    Remotely controlled ship without seafarers on board

  • Degree 4 icon

    Fully autonomous ship


At a Glance

Korea is a well-respected shipbuilding powerhouse.

However, to maintain this great reputation, it is essential to lead the technology in the field of autonomous operation, which will be the core technology for the next-generation shipping industry.

If you settle for the current level of technology and situation, you will never discover a new ocean.

The development and commercialization of autonomous driving technology in vehicles are already underway.

In contrast, the level of commercialization of autonomous navigation technology is still very low, and there hasn’t been a global case of commercialization yet.

Korea has the advantages for autonomous navigation technology development, as we are the best in the world for shipbuilding and ICT infrastructure.

Therefore, Avikus' goal is not to settle for the current technology but to develop and commercialize technologies for the future to be the pioneer of the future shipping industry.

We succeeded in commercializing HiNAS(Hyundai intelligent Navigation Assistant System) for the first time in the world and will be a 'Maritime Autonomous Pioneer' that leads the commercialization of autonomous navigation solutions for all ships from large commercial vessels to leisure boats based on the largest number of commercialization cases and data of ours.
