AVIKUS, HD Hyundai's autonomous navigation in-house startup and Raymarine announced signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the 2022 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show to cooperate on the integration of the world’s first autonomous leisure boat solution, the Avikus NeuBoat, into Raymarine’s world-leading navigational products. In addition, the MoU includes a cooperation on exploring the future of autonomous leisure boating and joint development.

During the cooperation, the two companies will work towards integrating NeuBoat and Raymarine products to bring autonomous leisure boat technology to the market, ushering in a new era of boating. The companies agree that autonomous boating technology will reduce difficulties in boating, such as docking and navigation in heavy traffic areas, making boat ownership more attractive, both for existing and new boaters.
