Avikus chosen by AquaSport for flagship model

Avikus, HD Hyundai’s autonomous navigation in-house start-up, has been appointed as a standard-fit option on AquaSport’s new flagship, the AS28 for model year 2025.

The AS28 is designed to be the next generation of fishing vessel, with a more comfortable interior, higher fuel capacity for offshore trips and the latest technological advances on board.

AquaSport will offer various levels of Avikus’ Advanced Driving Assist (ADAS) features, including NeuBoat Dock with 360-degree situational awareness, integrated camera packs and Neuboat Navi, with front facing camera and integrated lidar.

“Avikus’ NeuBoat has already been adopted by boat builders around the world and we are grateful to AquaSport for the foresight in joining this technological revolution,” said Lim Do-hyeong, CEO of Avikus.

“By integrating our cameras and LIDAR sensors into their hardtop mould for the new flagship model, shows a commitment to award-winning innovation. We are confident that new AquaSport owners will be thrilled with the superior situational awareness that NeuBoat Dock provides.”

Joseph Visconti, AquaSport Boats president, added: “We’re very happy with this first example of what Avikus can provide for our vessels and for our customers.”

“The AS28 is paving the way for an entirely new era in aquatic adventures, and we’re looking forward to the integration of Avikus technology in our upcoming models.”

Avikus’s NeuBoat System provides 360-degree situational awareness, 3D cluster views, advanced route planning, ‘smart’ autopilot navigation that can identify objects and provide a path to avoid potential collisions.

The system will begin shipping in Q1 2025.
