Kraken Unveils SeaVision 3D Laser System

Kraken Sonar’s subsidiary, Kraken Robotik GmbH, plans to introduce its new SeaVision 3D laser system at the Ocean Business conference in UK.

SeaVision is an RGB underwater laser imaging system that offers the resolution, range and scan rate to deliver dense full colour 3D point cloud images of subsea infrastructure.

The initial system is designed for deployment on underwater robotic platforms such as remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).

SeaVision can also be used in profiling mode, where the lasers automatically maintain optimal scan angles and acquire colour 3D data as the ROV or AUV platform moves along the target.

Dr. Jakob Schwendner, managing director of Kraken Robotik said, “3D laser scanning unlocks the potential of underwater surveys for subsea asset assessment. SeaVision enables the existing conditions of underwater assets to be captured as millions of data points, which can then be imported into 3D modeling software for creating realistic, to-scale images of the asset.”

Karl Kenny, Kraken’s president and CEO said, “The combination of SeaVision with our sonar and underwater robotics technology will become a valuable tool for subsea asset management. We expect it will enable autonomous, real-time, millimetre resolution 3D modeling, change detection and predictive structural integrity assessment.”
