Rovco has launched SubSLAM Live a 3D Streaming technology which allows clients to video and live stream 3D underwater point clouds to any device in the world. The stereo camera technology system sends images and 3D models of assets from the seabed to a computer browser in any location globally. This offers customers instantaneous access to information as an inspection or construction activity is taking place. The capabilities of this new technology will change the way the industry carries out underwater inspections. It can reduce time, cost and revolutionise the way engineer’s process data, allowing for faster data-driven decisions to be made regarding the integrity of subsea infrastructure. The accurately calibrated stereo camera system model is automatically scaled. This means clients can not only view the model but can also take live measurements of the assets. There are no specialist tools required as it works within a standard web browser.

Rovco trialled the technology earlier in the year with an oil and gas Super Major, at a renewable wind farm, and more recently in 0.5m of visibility at an ex-naval dockyard owned by Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult. During the final trials, the technology was lowered into a sea-water filled dock which contains sample assets from the subsea industry. Engineers were using the state-of-the-art stereo camera system to capture high-definition video, this allowed us to use the SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping) system to build highly accurate 3D point cloud models while staff back in our office 300 miles away, directed the ROV while keeping track of the ROV location and operations via their phones and laptops.
