I’m currently making a first attempt to port the ADS-B avoidance and GCS display code to work with AIS data (the equivalent of ADS-B for shipping). This would then allow the use of an AIS receiver (currently using the dAISy as it’s firmware is open source) onboard our boats. I hope this is a first step towards integrating collision avoidance autonomy into arduboat.
The AIS data protocol is quite detailed, so I’m posting to ask if anyone is interested in this functionality, and if so which AIS parameters they would consider valuable. I’m currently planning MMSI (ref no), Course over ground, speed over ground, nav status (fishing/underway/anchored) and position.
