An ROV camera is any visual imaging system that can be used on underwater ROVs to provide the operator with a perception of the operating environment. The depth rating for an ROV camera usually starts at 300m.

What is an ROV camera?

The aim of this article is to provide a high-level answer to the question: “What do people use underwater robotic arms for?” If you’ve worked with Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) before, this article probably isn’t for you. For everyone else, let’s go.

Top Uses of Underwater ROV Manipulators

A Quick Start Guide to Underwater ROVs. In this guide, you’ll learn about what defines a remotely operated vehicle, different types of ROVs, and what they are used for. Underwater ROVs are used to observe and interact underwater across a range of industries.

What are underwater ROVs & What can they be used for?

In this webinar (July 2020) we take the first public in-depth look at the Reach Bravo underwater robotic arm system and answer attendees questions.

WEBINAR Reach Bravo - A New Underwater Robotic Arm - Demo and Q&A

Ever tried to hold your breath for hours, up to 4km underwater to deploy, characterise or manipulate cabling or underwater infrastructure? It’s not something humans can do.

Robotics for Harsh Environments: Subsea

Decommissioning happens around us all the time, old buildings get torn down, coal power plants shutdown and vehicles get scrapped.

Multicopter(the best known example of them is quadcopter) drones and fixed-wing drones are two different type of drones that have similar but slightly different flight mechanics.In this article, I will speculate which one is better for carrying pizza or any other low density high volume payloads.

Multicopter vs Fixed-Wing: Which One Can Deliver Pizzas Better?

The optical gyroscope is 500 times smaller than the current state-of-the-art device.

The city of Amsterdam envisions a future where fleets of autonomous boats cruise its many canals to transport goods and people, collect trash, or self-assemble into floating stages and bridges.

Autonomous boats can target and latch onto each other.

Professor of Mechanical Engineering Kenji Shimada and his team of researchers are using drone technology to help detect and restore damaged water canals in Japan that are critical for the agricultural economy.

Using drones in agriculture and irrigation

The biggest mystery in the Universe could possibly be right here on Earth. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as much as 95% of the oceans and 99% of the ocean floor has yet to be explored.

The watershed moment for underwater drones

For environmental monitoring, precision agriculture, infrastructure maintenance and certain security applications, slow and energy efficient can be better than fast and always needing a recharge. That’s where “SlothBot” comes in.
