Thank you to everyone that visited Water Linked during the Equinor Underwater Intervention Drone demonstration event at Tau/Stavanger, Norway this week.
Water Linked demonstrated #UnderwaterGPS acheiving 1cm (!) positioning accuracy during docking of the Oceaneering Freedom UID drone on a Blue Logic subsea inductive charging station. The requirement was 2.5cm accuracy for the drone to connect to the inductive system. This requirement was demonstrated to be well within reach of Underwater GPS.
We even demonstrated wireless transfers of FullHD images from an AUV to the docking station using our upcoming Modem M4K product. This fulfils the requirement of having a "Human In The Loop" before a UID drone executes critical tasks subsea.
Two very interesting days and we look forward to supporting the industry with the best possible positioning system enabling safe and efficient docking of UID drones! ... See MoreSee Less
We are extremely excited to launch a brand new product family for the aquaculture industry.
With Water Linked AquaSense you can operate a fully featured sensor population without the cables!
Key Features: - 18+ months battery lifetime - Rechargable battery - Underwater GPS position of the sensor - Cloud based user interface - Unlimited number of sensors per system - Selectable measurement frequency - Temp/Tilt-angle/Depth included in ALL sensors - Open API for integration to existing systems
Come by our booth A-102 at AquaNor this week to see the sensors and a user interface demo for yourself. We look forward to discuss your operation and requirements. ... See MoreSee Less
Hi Louis. The Locator-U1 works fine on the Blueye Pioneer. The Locator is battery powered and does not need any external connections making the integration with ROVs like the Pioneer very easy!
If you order a positioning system from us, make sure to let us know you will use it on a Pioneer so we can include the correct mounting bracket for you.
Is it works on Blueye Robotics Pioneer? where is the power supply?
Do you own or plan to buy an ROV from Outland Technology? As you can see in this video, it is as easy as using two cable ties to fit the Underwater GPS acoustic positioning system to the ROV! Simply unmatched performance in tanks, shallow water and other reflective areas. US 5.500,- for a complete positioning kit. ... See MoreSee Less
Hi Mitch, the Water Linked system is accurate typically with a 1% error margin. So on 100m you are within an area of 1m. If you want to locate the ROV on a map, you have to add the error margin of the global GPS system as well. This is typically 3m but can go down to 1cm with a RTK enabled GPS system.
What kind of acccuracy does the GPS sounding system return on pose and global reference frame?
