Underwater robot surveys harbour walls automatically

Blue Atlas Robotics has been participating in a Rima Network experiment named AUPIR.

Blue Atlas Robotics, in collaboration with LE34, have been developing a RIMA experiment of an underwater inspection robot that performs large-scale subsea surveys unguided by a human operator.

The AUPIR robot navigates a harbour wall automatically whilst capturing visual inspection data. 

The robot is performing the inspection without intervention from the operator. It “sees” where it is going via computer vision, constantly checking for obstacles and complex geometries to navigate around.

NEXT GENERATION OF SUBSEA SURVEYING TOOLS

NEXT GENERATION OF SUBSEA SURVEYING TOOLS

Blue Atlas Robotics has been working hard to create tools that function as an “extra arm” for people in the maritime and marine spaces trying to see things clearly underwater. Close asset management, lowering CO2 emissions, and predictive maintenance are all key topics moving into the future of marine and waterway management. As infrastructure such as ports and wind farms move towards automation and more regular inspections, tools for regular or constant surveying are becoming more and more in demand.
