We’re building these for, we think, less than $2 million apiece,” says Kauffman.Google Earth - underwaterTerradepth has hired people from Tesla, people who know autonomy and AI, software specialists and technologists from other industries to all put their minds to this. “That’s where you get disruption and that’s critical to make everyone’s job easier, because

, we have been advancing advocates of using 3D data to revolutionize the offshore maintenance and asset integrity space for a number of years now."Worth noting, back in 2018, the Neptune operated Cygnus platform became the first offshore oil and gas unit available for "visit" via Google Street View, allowing users to tour the platform, learn more about it via explanatory notes and watch offshore workers talk about offshore life.Based in the southern North Sea, approximately 150km off the Lincolnshire coast, the Cygnus field has been producing gas since December 2016. It typically

;s manager of architecture and governance of product marketing, said.Low-code platforms are an accelerating trend as companies digitise globally, big tech is developing new systems and the impact of COVID-19 increases the focus on cost-cutting.Amazon launched a platform called Honeycode last week and Google bought AppSheet in January to replace an older system. Microsoft's Power App has existed for several years. Portugal's biggest technology start-up, OutSystems, is a major competitor."The concept matured in the last 7 to 10 years with an acceleration in the last couple. It addresses the

The CMRE Open Library uses the DSpace open source software solution familiar to many researchers, providing a familiar search interface either directly or through academic search engines such as Google Scholar.“The CMRE Open Library allows for better visibility of its publications and technical papers, and makes this vital knowledge available to all,” said CMRE’s scientific editor, Dr. Erin Yunes. “This is knowledge to share.&rdquo

funny – because JANUS is just a protocol—but they all had their own proprietary modems, and we gave them our JANUS open source C++ protocol.  By the end of the week, all of them could talk to each other using their own proprietary modem software, but with JANUS on top. It’s like Google Translate. We’re not competing with industry.  We support the national industries – that’s what we’re for. We develop the concept and then we let the industries build it. And with JANUS, these different modem manufacturers can talk to each other without having to change

members. The mission planning can be supervised from the office as long as there is net-work access (e.g. via VPN over 4G) to the boat and simply navigating with the web browser to the survey PC. Then the mission planning can be shared and modified as needed.A similar feature is available for maps. The Google Maps or Open Street Maps can be cached locally and made available on the survey PC to run the background maps even without the internet access.Quality-driven mission executionDCT offers four types of real-time display accessible via simple tap or mouse click under the layer menu button.

Now, everything is digital. The whole microprocessor world happened. In the 1960s, there were no cell phones, no internet, no Google. Anything you wanted to do was harder.”Now there are autonomous vehicle swarms that are being used for search operations, such as for the lost Argentinian submarine. “That’s exciting. We’re starting to get to the point where you can work from home and put something in the

Google invests $700 mln in Danish data center, secures green energyGoogle will invest almost $700 million in a Danish data centre, the latest investment in the Nordic region which is known for its abundant renewable energy.Google said it would match the new centre's use of energy made from fossil fuels with green energy generated through so-called power purchase agreements (PPAs).The Nordic countries, which can generate electricity relatively cheaply from renewable sources such as hydropower and wind, have long been a magnet for heavy power-using industries, but are now attracting power-hungry
