- “Subsea robots, or remotely operated vehicles, are currently operated inefficiently using outdated controls and analog inputs,” Pickering explained. “Pilots are overwhelmed by a data overload with up to 10 monitors streaming information from sensors on the vehicle.”
- Pickering said that Bluhaptics’ technology can improve operating efficiency by 20 to 30 percent over existing options, “which can save offshore oil and gas and renewable companies billions of dollars per year,” he noted.
- “We’re the first company in the world to use 3D data for manipulator controls (robotic arms) subsea,” added Pickering, who previously founded Altrec.com, Cosmix and Memetic Systems. “The history of subsea robotics is mechanical. Our GPU, parallel processing and control systems capabilities are unique in subsea robotics.”
