Here a short animation to showcase the hull shape of Allec Pro. Pretty neat, right? [embedyt][/embedyt]

Prototype in 3D Print

As usually we use 3D printed prototypes A LOT when working on a new robot. Here a picture of our new robot, Allec Pro. The black “thing” on top is a detachable tether wire cap.  

Working in packs

The underwater world is a big place and sometimes it is more fun or efficient to bring friends.   Allec can work together with other Allecs to solve missions.   Say you want to quickly find places with wrecks or every fish you can possibly spot. Simply put several Allecs on the task.   The… Læs mere Working in packs

Object avoidance

A requirement for a robot sailing on his own is to be able to spot objects in his way and react on them.   In a earlier post we talked about Allec’s computer vision. It allows Allec to not just detect objects, but also understand what kind of object he is looking at.   So… Læs mere Object avoidance

Discovery Chart

A brilliant feature of Allec is his Discovery chart. It’s a graphical overview of what Allec experienced during his trip under water and will display the route sailed and the objects Allec recognized during the dive on an area map.   If you bring Allec along on your underwater diving or snorkeling trip, he will… Læs mere Discovery Chart

Allec vision

Allec does not just record the world around him, he actually sees it.   To be able to do this, Allec’s brain contain his own version of computer vision.   Allec is able to categorize what he sees into 10 categories, rating the likeliness of what he saw with at 0 to 100 % likeliness,… Læs mere Allec vision

Dead reckoning navigation

Wonder how Allec navigate below the waves?   The first thing you need to know when considering submarine navigation is that radio waves really don’t like to travel below water. The means that when sailing below using GPS for navigation is not possible.   We have to fall back to the good old days, where… Læs mere Dead reckoning navigation
