    Considering the civil consumption level of underwater UAVs, underwater UAVs can be used in aquaculture monitoring, dam inspection, scientific research,and exploration, underwater photography, island tourism,and other fields to help people better realize underwater operations. Firstly, underwater UAV is more adaptable to the environment.1.The underwater visibility is much lower than that ...

  • Underwater Bridge Inspections – Drones Conducting Remote Evaluations

    Deep Trekker Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV), or underwater drones, are establishing themselves as the ideal tool for underwater bridge inspections. It goes without saying that the structural integrity of a bridge is extremely important; after all, you’re only either walking, driving, or riding a train across it. With the public safety in mind and to continue the flow of traffic, these ...

  • Water Treatment Plant: Benefits of Underwater Cameras

    Before fresh water can be made safe for human consumption it must go through a treatment process eliminating bacteria and any other elements deemed unsafe to drink. How does such a process occur and why is it relevant to us? We’ve written about the use of Deep Trekker remotely operated vehicles and pipe crawler systems in storm water systems, sanitation pipes, and water storage basins. A ...

  • Mobile UW–ASN framework with RSSI–based protocol for shallow river monitoring

    Approximately three–fourths of our planet's surface is covered by ocean and seas, a continuous body of water that is divided into several oceans and smaller seas. Water conditions determine climate that affects life on Earth. Whereas fresh water in lakes and rivers covers less 1%, its contamination significantly damages ecosystems. Within this research this paper proposes a framework with a ...
