Orca AI partners

Liberty was one of the early collaborators with Orca AI, deploying the first Orca AI unit on a US flag Ro-Ro vessel (Liberty Pride) in 2019.

The platform, which is installed on Liberty’s ro-ro vessels and on ARC’s entire fleet, acts as a fully automatic watch-keeper, powered by computer vision and deep learning algorithms that detect, track and classify navigation-applicable targets that may pose a risk to the vessel.

It is operational 24/7, prioritizes risk and presents it in a user-friendly interface. An office dashboard also highlights potential high-risk events, supplying the operations teams ashore with insights and recommendations that help them to enhance the safety of their fleets.

Additional level of Situational awareness

Fred Finger, SVP of Operations of American Roll-On Roll-Off Carrier (ARC), commented: “ARC is pleased to have added Orca AI to our suite of bridge resource tools. 

This technology brings an additional level of situational awareness to assist our bridge teams in their decision-making process.”

Commenting on the deal with ARC and Liberty, Yarden Gross, CEO and Co-Founder of Orca AI, said: “We are excited to work with Liberty and ARC, two of the US’ leading ro-ro operators and innovation-driven companies, who understand that technology is a key enabler of safer and more operationally efficient shipping operations.”
