BATHYMETRIC DRONE

Agile & Multifunction Mapping Boat

ArnoBath

Arnodva has developed an unmanned bathymetric drone thanks to his partnership with a major waste-treatment company. It is used for inspection and maintenance of wastewater tanks. It measures the level of pollution, and helps to take the proper actions to treat the water.

Purpose of the drone is to generate 3D mappings of underwater depth, sludge level detection, and turbidity level measurement.

Although this product has been build to fulfill certain tasks, it can easily be adapted for other missions or measures, thanks to its modular and flexible design. Contact us if you want to know more or start your own mechatronic & IoT innovation project.

Post-processing

capabilities

A companion interface of this drone has been developed specifically for his purpose.

On top of being able to calibrate the system and navigate the boat, the software is capable to save several campaigns of measurement in real time.
 

It delivers a mapping of the water area with indicators like sludge level, obstacles, PH, temperature, in an ergonomic dashboard (colour highlighted & 3D).

Heatmap visualization and dashboard is generated, pushed online (internet connection required), and thus easily shareable with co-workers.

 

The software runs on PC or tablet (touch compatible), either on a Linux or Windows station.
