Welcome to MaCVi!

Everything related to computer vision and robotics in the maritime domain, from critical search and rescue missions, autonomous boats and ship, to dynamic aquatic life monitoring, and more.

We're proud to announce the Maritime Computer Vision Initiative (MaCVi). MaCVi aims to gather leading experts, foster collaboration, and accelerate the integration of computer vision into all kinds of maritime domains.

On this page, you'll find useful information on benchmark datasets, scoreboards, past & upcoming workshops and more. Welcome to MaCVi.
