Live remote monitoring first for divers

Aquabotix has developed a new live remote-control technology to allow users to operate underwater vehicles and cameras remotely Aquabotix has developed a new live remote-control technology to allow users to operate underwater vehicles and cameras remotely

A new live remote-control technology allows users to operate underwater vehicles and cameras remotely from anywhere in the world as long as they have a browser enabled device.

The Live Remote Control enables users to operate Aquabotix’s Endura ROV, Hybrid AUV/ROV and AquaLens Connect, which is a networked underwater camera system, using a computers, phone or iPad over the Internet.

“With Live Remote Control, any browser-based modern device can now interact with our system,” said Durval Tavares, CEO of Aquabotix.

“Having our customers operate unmanned systems underwater in a live, immediate fashion, from anywhere in the world, is a game-changer for the underwater robotics industry.”

Multiple users

Importantly, Live Remote Control also enables multiple operators in multiple global locations to operate the same unmanned underwater vehicle.

Live Remote Control is designed to expand the virtual presence of Aquabotix’s product users, allowing them to better monitor what’s happening at all times, while sharing data across multiple sites. The web-driven innovation also reduces the need for increased or expensive on-site manpower for underwater operations.

This method of operation is conceptually somewhat similar to how the world’s technologically most advanced militaries have, for years, operated battlefield aerial drones from safe locations outside of the theatre of war.

Based in Sydney, Australia and Fall River, Massachusetts, USA, Aquabotix is an established underwater robotics company which manufactures and sells commercial and industrial-grade underwater drones and networked underwater cameras for commercial, high-end consumer and military applications.
