iXblue and 2G Robotics Join Forces - 04/09/2019
iXblue and 2G Robotics have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to offer a new survey skid for Inspection Class ROVs. This all-in-one integrated skid will deliver high accuracy inspection capabilities on small ROVs, enabling survey and inspection on low-cost assets. Using 2G Robotics’ ULS-500 Micro laser scanner and OBSERVER still camera, and iXblue’s Rovins Nano Inertial Navigation System, this new skid will offer a miniaturized laser scanner and navigation package dedicated to small-sized ROVs and AUVs.
“The collaboration between 2G and iXblue reflects a shift in the industry to compact and low-cost solutions,” said Chris Gilson, 2G’s Product Development Manager. “This package will enable small inspection class ROVs to perform high-resolution localized measurements and other inspection tasks currently being performed by larger and less cost-efficient work class ROVs.”
