Intelligent voyage planning and safe transportation solutions for the US Inland Waterways.

TRABUS uses predictive models and algorithms to offer data-driven services for the maritime transportation industry. We can help notify mariners of current and forecasted changes in river level conditions, bridge air gap clearance, and improved accuracy on estimated times of arrival. These data-driven services can also help avoid incidents such as vessels running aground, bridge collisions, or missed ETAs due to unknown lock closures, and unexpected stops. Our technology, algorithms and maritime data products provide access to:

River information services including river level observations and weather information
AI-based 7-day river level predictions
Bridge air gap clearances and 7-day projections for 300 bridges along the US inland waterways
Travel time estimates and predictions (using AIS data from Spire) for any section of the river along the US inland waterways
Lock queue status information
Location-specific, real-time marine safety information
River Level Predictions and Bridge Air Gap Clearances

TRABUS services include using patented deep learning-based algorithms that use historical river and weather information to provide 7-day river level projections. The AI-based models are used in projecting bridge air gap clearances, 7 days in advance, so inland waterway vessels such as barges, can plan their cargo loads and trips ahead of time.

    Travel Time Estimates and Predictions (using AIS data from Spire)

    TRABUS services include using graph theory and machine learning algorithms to provide travel time estimates and predictions (using AIS data from Spire), between any 2 points along the US inland waterways. This allows vessels to plan their voyages so as to accurately and reliably deliver goods and commodities on time.

      Real-time Marine Safety Information

      TRABUS has developed a unique alerting system that provides location-specific, time-relevant marine safety alerts (issued by the US Coast Guard and US Army Corps of Engineers) to vessel operators.
