About a quarter of Amsterdam’s surface area is water, with 165 canals winding alongside city streets.

 Self-driving technologies can save time, costs and energy, and improve the city moving forward. MIT researchers are trying to build a fleet of autonomous robotic boats — rectangular hulls equipped with sensors, thrusters, microcontrollers, GPS modules, cameras, and other hardware — that provides intelligent mobility on water to relieve congestion in the Amsterdam’s busy canals.
