QYSEA has just announced QYSEA’s Vision Lock function – a unique and intuitive feature encompassed within the FIFISH AI Platform system. With Vision Lock, the FIFISH achieves a real-time and automatic visual lock of subjects with its camera system. In addition, Vision Lock utilises adaptive capabilities to re-adjust and secure its position against currents, while being able to lock onto targets through various gesture controls and simple touches, all through your device screen.

We are learning of more and more examples of remote control of ROVs from shore. Recently, NOAA shared their experience of remote control of Deep Discoverer off the coast of Florida in early March:
“The ability to pilot the ROV from a shoreside location is the result of a team of very talented engineers who worked together to overcome the multiple challenges necessary to make this possible,” said Dave Lovalvo, [Global Foundation for Ocean Engineering], GFOE president. “GFOE is excited about the development of this capability and continues to advance our technology in the field of deep-ocean robotics.”
Stuff happens… anywhere and anytime. For Ocean Exploration Trust, “it” happened down at ~2,200m (7,200ft) when the tether connecting ROVs Hercules and Argus separated from their support vessel, leaving the vehicles stranded on the ocean floor in the Endeavor Hydrothermal Field.
Luckily, both ROVs were successfully recovered with the help of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI)’s ROV Jason. Hercules and Argus are now exploring ancient underwater volcanoes in Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM) off the northern islands of Hawaii.
We are so excited to see two of our suppliers partnering together! The Fifish V6 Expert, Pro/Plus and W6 ROV models will now be equipped as standard with the Water Linked A50 Doppler Velocity Log (DVL).
