Meet the Aquanaut: a transforming subsea robot that serves as an ROV or AUV to manipulate objects under water. It doesn’t need a manned surface platform for operation either. The Aquanaut has various sensors to detect its environment. Azimov, the on-board safety system, enables the robot to work around people and equipment safely.
The Aquanaut transforms to AUV mode when you are ready for subsea manipulation tasks. Its hull separates to expose two control thrusters and its arms. In ROV mode, the robot can scan structures.
