Defuzzy shows latest fleet management solutionMay 13, 2022 by Energy Connects
Defuzzy Labs collaborated with SubUAS, the US company behind the Naviator Air/Sea Drone platform, had demonstrated its latest robotics fleet management solution and shed light on the future of offshore inspections.
The demonstration, which was held at the AWS Energy Symposium in Houston, featured the Sharjah-based operator instructing a Naviator drone fleet to perform an inspection from over 11,000 kilometres away, alongside the SubUAS team based in New Jersey, USA.
“We are pleased to announce that Defuzzy’s robotics fleet management solution will be used to command a fleet of offshore robotic platforms, which will not just be limited to drones, but a combination of USVs (Unmanned Surface Vessels) and other drones. Our robotic fleet management solution eliminates many challenges associated with inspections of offshore facilities, such as adverse weather and harsh operational conditions, limited and poor communication, availability of multi-talented inspectors, difficulty to access spaces requiring special tooling and equipment, high risk operational environment, and lastly, high operational costs," said Adnane ElSoussi, CEO & Co-founder, Defuzzy.
The live demonstration showcased Defuzzy's latest development of its robotics fleet management solution, which uses AWS's Roborunner service to command multiple Naviator drones over the cloud.
The company said that this "scalable and modular solution" enables it to easily integrate robots of various makes, models, and forms into the fleet and control them.
Moreover, the cloud services will further help enhance remote monitoring solutions and complete accurate robotic inspections, which they explained improves the safety and efficiency of inspection operations.
