ALIVE: Successful Sea Trials

Following a series of tank and shallow water tests last summer, sea trials of ALIVE have successfully been performed in real conditions offshore the French Riviera. The objective was for ALIVE to dock on a subsea structure (ROV-panel) autonomously and carry out pre-programmed operations, opening and closing valves with its hydraulic manipulating arm. Target approach, docking on the subsea structure and manipulation are controlled via a sophisticated on-board video and sonar image processing, matched with a CAD (Computer-Aided Design) image of the environment. Three dives validated the functions of each sub-system. The robot proved its reliability in coping with difficult... (read more)
