Re: Self-Driving Boats Anyone?

Hmmm, now we just need autonomous fishing gear. Send the boat out to fish, returns with the fish to eat.

Sounds like the boat might be having more fun than the owner.

Autonomous piloted boats? Sort of like the old cowboy movies..... whistle for your horse and come to you.

Think of the possibilities for bringing the boat to a distant location to pick you up.
Now, we just need to develop an autonomous 'tying up the boat' system.
