CrossWater Autonomous Water Taxi project was inspired by the beauty of Italy, there’s a part of the city with majestic view, but it’s pretty far away from the city center. You have to cross a river and a lake to get to that part of the city. Yes, there’s a bridge, but bridges are designed for automobiles, so what is our option to cross the water, safer and faster?
Reflecting on this problem, CrossWater wants to offer a smart, clean-tech solution to move across water. This autonomous water taxi provides comfortable solution while being respectful to the environment, compared to horizontal elevator. It moves people across water rather than from one vertical platform to the next, it encourages people to travel by foot instead of automobile to cross a bridge.
CrossWater Automous Water Taxi is a self-driving, all electric transportation powered by solar energy and batteries, it is completely carbon neutral. The main purpose is to get commuters across water, hassle-free. The company claims that CrossWater is much less expensive than a traditional ferry, it is also five times faster without sacrificing the safety of its passengers. Accessible on-demand, CrossWater also helps to reduce carbon emssions.
