Autonomous vessels can be operated locally or remotely, and use automation in repeated operations. In principle, the vessel will transport Hurb employees, on the passenger route between the Peninsula, where the company's headquarters are located, and the Jardim Oceânico subway station, in round trips lasting about 20 minutes each stretch, with capacity for 15 people and bicycles .
The system will be 100% electric and will not emit polluting gases. Photovoltaic panels will be installed both on the vessel and on the docking pier (located on the Peninsula), will be used as a charging station and will contribute to charging the batteries, further reducing the environmental impact of the initiative. In addition, the technology will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods to detect oil and water pollution during navigation, contributing to regulatory agents in environmental control measures.
