Houston Mechatronics Leverages Greensea's OPENSEA

Greensea says its universal open software architecture OPENSEA was put to work as a development platform for Houston Mechatronics in the early development phases of its shape-shifting Aquanaut underwater vehicle.HMI's Aquanaut is a multipurpose subsea robot which employs a patented shape-shifting transformation from an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) to a tetherless remotely operated vehicle (ROV), removing the need for large vessels and umbilicals. The vehicle's two distinct operating modes enable both the efficient collection of data as well as the remote operation of maintenance and

Greensea Hires Green as Senior Robotics Engineer

Greensea, creator of OPENSEA, the open software architecture platform for the marine industry, recently added key personnel to its engineering team to support the development of its EOD technologies. Matt Green, Senior Robotics Engineer, is leading the technology development of Greensea’s EOD Workspace, a navigation, control, and user interface system for inspection class ROVs used  in military subsea EOD mitigation.“We wanted a robotics engineer who would push the boundaries of what a small ROV is capable of in the EOD world. These ROVs require highly accurate navigation and control
