Sabertooth AUV system, Modus Seabed Intervention has now bought its second, deep water rated Sabertooth, which will be delivered this summer.The acquisition of its latest 3,000m-rated Sabertooth, will enable the company to continue to build on its track record and to offer vehicles with enhanced artificial intelligence and autonomy capabilities.The company’s vision is for its HAUVs to operate infield at offshore oil and gas and renewables sites, including wind farms, independent of service vessels. This could be via a surface deployment system or via a subsea garage/docking station, which the vehicle

Those instrumentation providers created a new wave of digital sonar, modern circuits, there’s been an evolution in transceivers and these shrank and have become to some extent more affordable.“The improvement in autonomy, artificial intelligence, machine learning, etc., they have matured. In the 1990s, you had to write a text file and up load it to the computer of the robot, push a button and hope it didn’t have a typo,” he adds. “Now to do a mission plan you throw a couple of way points in and say go.

The “Disruption” in AUV Trends

Missions—it’s all a question of missions. The mission decides the payload, battery capacity, size and processing power of an autonomous underwater vehicle, or AUV. King among these is payload, from which market disruption is just waiting to happen. Changing payloads of artificial intelligence, management software, and researcher resourcefulness now combine with entrepreneurial technologists to inject uncertainty into AUV market forecasts.On a stormy night in an arctic sea, waves of salt water slosh against the hull of a light, unmanned surface vessel. A sleek, yellow “torpedo&rd

Artificial Intelligence Aids Subsea Object Detection

A developer of real-time 3D sonar technology and real-time subsea intelligence has launched a new product that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically detect and recognize distinct underwater objects.Coda Octopus announced Tuesday that it is launching the initial product of its AI-based Automatic Object Detection (AOD) software product series, the Survey Engine Automatic Object Detection Package (SEADP), which enables geophysicists to automatically accomplish the previously painstaking and costly task of manually sifting through data to identify, tag and report on boulders within a seabed
