Buffalo Automation launches ‘first ever’ AI-operated water taxi in Knoxville, TN

As part of its objective to create a “driverless” boat, akin to the driverless cars that we are seeing out on the road, Buffalo Automation has successfully launched an AI-navigated water taxi. The historic launch of the solar powered taxi, called Greycraft – currently in its “1.0” state – was held in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Greycraft is an alternative form of transportation that will one day carry a multitude of passengers from port to port, while autonomously navigating busy waterway channels. This will be done by using Buffalo Automation’s resourceful Mayday app, which will allow travelers to “hail” a water taxi, similar to how people interact with Lyft or Uber.
