SeaDrone Inc. Introduces Inspector 2.0 Doubling down on aquaculture inspection
San Francisco Bay area based robotics startup, SeaDrone Inc., announces the launch of Inspector 2.0, the latest innovation in underwater robotics, this summer.
Inspector 1.0 was launched at TechCrunch Disrupt 2016 and was the first sub – 6 kg underwater vehicle capable of tackling 1.5 knot ocean currents using its omnidirectional drag design and high thruster to weight ratio.
Since the pre-order launch at TechCrunch, SeaDrone has sold hundreds of units of Inspector 1.0 units all over the world with primary markets being Japan, Chile, Norway, with aquaculture as the primary use case.
SeaDrone Inspector 2.0 maintains everything that made SeaDrone Inspector great and further improves it. The company has increased the vehicle’s top speed and stability for better handling and more stable footage. With spare battery packs, you can now operate all day.
They are continuing to improve our product and are developing autonomous capabilities on the vehicle that will allow SeaDrone to scan a farm net and automatically determine tears. We are seeking additional distribution partners to help us take the SeaDrone platform to the next level.
SeaDrone Inspector 2.0 maintains everything that made SeaDrone Inspector great and further improves it. With an increased top speed of 20% and vehicle stability improved by 100%.
Here are some tech specifications:
Full hd (1080p) stable camera, full HD true color video camera that can stream and record videos and capture photos.
Ready to go in 15 minutes. SeaDrone Inspector comes ready to dive. Download the app, plug in the tether, and turn on the Wi-Fi router and robot and you are ready to go!
Operate in 1.5 knot currents. SeaDrone Inspector has been designed to have a symmetric thrust to drag profile. SeaDrone’s vectored thrusters and high thrust-to-weight ratio puts you in control.
5000 lumen bi-directional light array provides 270-degree field of illumination. Precisely control the intensity of each Super Bright LED light.
Precisely and safely inspect structures down to 100 meters.
An integrated on-board rechargeable lithium ion battery provides on approximately 3-4 HR dive times.
