iXblue and 2G Robotics to Boost Small Inspection-Class ROVs

iXblue and 2G Robotics have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to offer a new survey skid for inspection-class ROVs.

This all-in-one integrated skid should deliver inspection capabilities on small ROVs, enabling survey and inspection on low cost assets.

Using 2G Robotics’ ULS-500 Micro laser scanner and OBSERVER still camera, and iXblue’s Rovins Nano Inertial Navigation System, this new skid will offer a miniaturized laser scanner and navigation package dedicated to small-sized ROVs and AUVs.

The collaboration between 2G and iXblue reflects a shift in the industry to compact and low-cost solutions,” said Chris Gilson, 2G’s product development manager. “This package will enable small inspection class ROVs to perform high-resolution localized measurements and other inspection tasks currently being performed by larger and less cost-efficient work class ROVs.”

This MoU is the outcome of a long-standing collaboration between 2G Robotics and iXblue, with the industry already using the Phins Subsea INS with ULS-500 PRO on Work-Class ROVs. This offering is another step forward in our collaboration and is a clear endorsement of the navigation technology we develop at iXblue,” states Shayan Haque, business development manager at iXblue.
