Dr Wasif Naeem, an Academic from the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was the PI from QUB on the MAXCMAS (MAchine eXecutable Collision regulations for Marine Autonomous Systems) project leading the development of collision avoidance algorithms. The project demonstrated that the existing Maritime 'Rules of the Road' or COLREGs remain relevant for autonomous vessels. The development of collision avoidance algorithms was central to the £1.3m InnovateUK project part funded by the DSTL.
