Algoritmi USV Cargo Concept
Algoritmi is a concept design study for a Zero emissions Cargo Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV) or Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV), measuring 800 m in length and incorporating a number of futuristic technologies These technologies include a Zero carbon propulsion system Powered by a compact atomic fusion reactor, Robust and lightweight Composite Materials, solar panels, On-board Supercomputer system architecture With AI for Auto management and control, ultrasound and laser sensors, Radars and anti-collision Systems, 360° Cameras , satellite and GPS Navigation Systems, These technologies will be able to make the vessel full Autonomous with unlimited range of operations.
This project started with the question ‘How to improve efficiency in the shipping industry?’ and ‘what is the future of shipping industry?’, So my idea was to propose a concept design study for a Zero emissions Cargo Unmanned Surface Vessel incorporating a cutting-edge futuristic technologies.
The process started by defining a problem and a scenario in which I would design a solution. After that I started the research phase exploring many different ideas, Once the design is fixed, I started to create a CAD model. Finally, i render the 3d model with Keyshot and I used Photoshop for the post production.
At this time this project has appeared in behance, some websites, etc, therefore I've received a lot of positive comments, views and likes and feedbacks from many people about the project. and many people was really interested in the Concept futuristic technologies.
My project is named after, al-Khwārizmi, formerly Latinized as Algoritmi, one of the most prominent and influential thinkers of the Islamic Golden Age, he was a mathematician, astronomer, and geographer. He is often considered one of the fathers of algebra.
At this time there’s still much work to be done, including current rules and legislation and careful examination of the safety and security implications of operating USV ships, some technologies in this concept are still futuristic, in consequence this ship concept could be a reality as early as 2050.
