Robots go where no divers can to recover munitions

September 29, 2016 Robots go where no divers can to recover munitions A new software system from BluHaptics allows operators to see sunken munitions in 3-D and retrieve them with remotely operated vehicles that provide human touch-like feedback. By JOHN R. KANEKane Environmental Kane Kane Environmental and Kane Remediation Technologies are working with a Fremont-based robotics software company, BluHaptics, to apply its new software system using remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to identify and remove munitions from the sea floor and to sample remote deep water sediment where human divers cannot go. BluHaptics developed the software that uses data fusion, machine learning and control technology to make ROV operations more efficient. The software works with a wide variety of ROVs, sensors and manipulator arms, which allow for operation in the most…
