CANADA  Two Canadian underwater technology companies, Voyis and Deep Trekker, have joined forces to achieve an integration of Voyis' Discovery camera with Deep Trekker's REVOLUTION ROV.

Deep Trekker's REVOLUTION ROV is an underwater vehicle that the company boasts is designed to conquer the most unforgiving aquatic conditions, while also offering enhanced stability and maneuverability. The vehicle has a rotating head that facilitates optimal positioning of attachments, such as imaging sonar and grabbers. Capable of descending to depths of up to 305 m, the ROV employs six powerful thrusters for precise control in both vertical and lateral movements, even in challenging currents. This adaptable thruster configuration not only ensures stability but also fine-tuned adjustments during inspections and surveys. Its rugged construction, featuring a carbon fiber shell, anodized aluminum, stainless steel body and sapphire lens cover, underscores its durability and reliability, Deep Trekker said.
Voyis' Discovery Cameras, enhanced by the Nova Mini Lights, are ideal for underwater exploration. These cameras capture 4K video with minimal latency while simultaneously generating high-resolution still images and IMU data. The resulting assets can be processed through edge computing to produce intricate 3D models. These capabilities find applications in intelligent ROV piloting and comprehensive inspections. The cameras produce clear stills suitable for advanced machine vision and 3D modeling, complemented by real-time image enhancement, an ultra-wide field of view (130°x130°), and distortion correction for comprehensive situational awareness. Designed with compactness in mind and incorporating integrated lights, along with DDS data architecture and ROS2 support, the cameras streamline vehicle integration, particularly for autonomy-driven applications, Voyis said.

The collaboration between Voyis and Deep Trekker was tested and proven successful during trials in Tobermory, Ontario. Both teams worked together to achieve this success and test the ROV capabilities for piloting and inspection, with the Discovery Camera.

By integrating the Discovery Camera with the REVOLUTION ROV, professionals gain access to a suite of tools for underwater surveys, inspections and explorations.

With the successful integration of the Discovery Camera and REVOLUTION ROV, the companies said users can anticipate elevated capabilities, heightened precision and transformative insights that will redefine industries dependent on precise underwater data.
