AC-ROV Concept Vehicle

Ac-cess and their engineering partners at All Oceans (UK) have been researching, developing and testing materials and components leading to development of the AC-ROV concept video camera and sensor platform. This has six thrusters, all identical, to give the operator all the viewing control that will ever be needed. Four full-bore vectored horizontal thruster units give equal forward, sideways and pan control, whilst two vertical units give powerful up, down and pitch control. A one handed (left or right) 5-axis controller makes for a very simple and versatile operator interface. Flight Freeze is a further feature that may be selected,... (read more)

Scientists Discover Electric Leopard ROV

Marine scientists are discovering the Leopard electric underwater robotic vehicle from Saab Seaeye for complex and varied research projects. These projects range from cold-water coral studies to environmental monitoring, biodiversity research and tsunami warning systems.  Tokyo University says that technological advances in underwater robotics systems, as found in the Leopard, are making a wider range of tasks more possible. Studies in Japan are using the Leopard to examine the biodiversity surrounding hydrothermal vent activity in order to protect the inter-connecting ecosystems around mineral extraction sites. They are also using the Leopard to help enhance the tsunami early warning seismographic monitoring... (read more)
