Orca AI raises $2.6 million to stop ship collisions

Boat collision avoidance system maker Orca AI today announced the close of a $2.6 million funding round.

The funding will be used to grow the company’s engineering ranks and possibly open an office in Europe later this year.

Orca uses a combination of thermal cameras, low-light cameras, and other sensors to keep ship operators aware of nearby ships and alert them about potential danger.
