Hydromea unveiled the prototype of world’s first wi-fi underwater drone in a pool demo at this time. The drone can match right into a backpack, may be remotely managed, and sends HD video again in actual time with none bodily connection to the pilot. The drone will ship vital advantages in various inspection situations in confined flooded areas, similar to hydropower dams, closed waterways and ballast tanks on ships, lowering the fee and time-to-results, eliminating security dangers of harmful inspections carried out by people at this time.
Igor Martin, co-founder and CEO of Hydromea, stated: “Up to now, transportable underwater automobiles at all times relied on a cable for communication. Our underwater drone works and not using a cable and sends full HD video stream again in actual time. This eliminates any dangers of getting caught in advanced flooded areas, often related to cabled automobiles.”
Felix Schill, co-founder and CTO of Hydromea, added: “Since radio indicators don’t journey underneath water, Hydromea needed to develop a brand new know-how to regulate the drone: a wi-fi optical system which makes use of mild to transmit high-bandwidth information. With our distinctive know-how that’s strong and miniaturized, we will lastly minimize the twine and unleash the liberty of transportable robotics underwater.”
Founded in 2014, Hydromea is a Swiss-based autonomous underwater robotics firm delivering options that permit prospects to have unparalleled entry to subsea information and underwater property. Ultra-fast and high-volume, real-time information switch and harvesting convey a paradigm shift in our quest to discover the ocean and perceive its affect on the subsea financial system.
