Underwater robotics company Aquabotix has introduced ‘Live Remote Viewing’, a new product feature that enables real-time underwater viewing and connectivity between Aquabotix’s products and remote customers via the cloud.
Live Remote Viewing, designed specifically for Aquabotix’s Endura remotely operated vehicle and AquaLens Connect (networked underwater camera system), utilizes remote diagnostics to allow off-site customers to monitor multiple inspections, operations and explorations from a single platform in real time.
“The Internet of Things is changing the way our world communicates and interacts, and we believe that same concept should apply under the water,” said Durval Tavares, Aquabotix’s CEO. “We’re helping to address our customers’ pain points by transforming a previously singular, disconnected entity into one where multiple underwater technologies can work together on the one platform. Utilizing the IoT to produce the world’s only digital inspection-class ROV platform, we are confident Live Remote Viewing will be a game changer in the world of underwater robotics and the start of many future cloud-driven innovations for Aquabotix.”
The Live Remote Viewing product feature is designed for use across a wide range of industries, including aquaculture and infrastructure. For the aquaculture industry in particular, which continues to grow exponentially, the feature will enable higher quality, more cost-effective inspections of fish farms. Customers will now have access to continuous live feeds from the Endura ROV that can monitor the condition of the fish and nets, inspect moorings and assess feeding habits to prevent overfeeding.
Live Remote Viewing is now available to all Aquabotix customers. Current customers will not receive an upcharge to utilize Live Remote Viewing, but are required to register an account with Aquabotix to access live, secure feeds through the feature.
