Last week Aquabotix traveled to London, UK to exhibit at the Oceanology International 2018 Exhibition and Conference, March 13-15, 2018. Oceanology International brings together marine professionals and businesses to discuss topics and technology to measure, develop, protect and operate across the world’s oceans.
Aquabotix displayed our technology-leading hardware and software, including the Endura™ ROV, Integra™ Hybrid AUV, and live remote-control software. Visitors at the Aquabotix stand in London, UK were able to take live control of an Endura ROV located in Fall River, MA to remotely pilot the vehicle from a web browser.
Water Linked, an underwater GPS company, had an Endura™ ROV on display which featured a Water Linked GPS, capable of tracking vehicle position using a series of transponders located around the sides of the water tank. Water Linked can be used for accurate vehicle position tracking inside potable water tanks, and alongside ship hulls. Water Linked demonstrated the Endura running “position hold” to remain within the center of the tank.
During the show, Aquabotix also announced the sale of a Hybrid AUV to KIGAM (Korea Institute of Geosicience and Mineral Resources). KIGAM plans to use the Hybrid for ongoing geoscience and energy research in Korean waters. Jung Kyun Shin, KIGAN senior researcher said: “The lightweight feel and ease-of-use of Aquabotix’s Hybrid vehicle will be instrumental in helping us fulfill our research and tasks over multiple missions.”
Ted Curley, Chief Development Officer at Aquabotix noted: “We had a great week at Oceanology International, being able to display our Integra™ Hybrid AUV and Endura™ ROV. Participants loved the live viewing and live remote control to our ROV in Fall River, MA – what a great way to showcase it all!”
