Internship Background
At Volvo Penta, we believe that boating should be as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.

It’s the smarter way to Easy Boating.
The unveiling of the pioneering self-docking yacht technology is the latest in Volvo Penta’s ongoing ‘Easy Boating’ philosophy to make boating simple, enjoyable and accessible to more people. At its heart is the joystick-controlled Volvo Penta Inboard Performance System (IPS), a complete and integrated propulsion system – from the helm station, via the engine, all the way to the propellers.
Scope of work
Investigating new sensors for collision avoidance in marine applications is the main scope of the work. Selecting a cluster of sensors for identifying objects around the boat, sensor fusion, software and hardware selection, testing and verification of the solution. This is a proof of concept and not all the product constraints will be applied at this stage.
