Self-sailing boats are a new trend in the boat building and repairing industry. Software of self-sailing boats allow these boats to independently move from point-to-point, avoiding obstacles and working with other boats along the way. Boat building companies are getting ready to build self-sailing boats and ships for commercial purpose using robotics technology. Roboat, a project by researchers from MIT, Delft University of Technology and Wageningen University and Research to build a fleet of autonomous canal-going vessels is investing in building day vessels.
