- Together with an array of sensors, DIVY can provide useful information to scuba divers, such as depth, water temperature, timer and oxygen level. Also capturing geo-localized photographs and sharing them instantly is possible.
Rodon 100 is the first underwater drill that allows the operator to replace the battery directly underwater thanks to Tech4Sea patented system.
- Can be used both as a screwdriver or as a drill. No support is required to the boat because it is battery powered;
- Fully resistant thanks to the series 6 aluminum anodized bodyshell;
- Patented system for fast battery release in water USCS;
- Samsung lithium batteries;
- Electronic sensors for the detection of anomalies: temperature, current and water leak;
- Security system for malfunctions and battery status detecting.
DEVSS is an electric vehicle, equipped with marine or aerial propellers that can be remotely controlled or configured for autonomous missions, with or without supervision from a human.
- Operates on surfaces up to 500 m and consists of stainless-steel tubular core mounted on two neoprene inflatables that ensure its floating in water.
- Designed to accommodate a watertight suitcase and additional devices such as multi beams, cameras, scanners, sonars, DVLs, etc.
- Designed also to obtain a semi-autonomous monitoring and environmental analysis system but its features make it suitable for many potential uses, such as the optical or acoustic acquisition of the seabed.
Iblue culture provides to the people, to visit ancient archaeological shipwrecks through Virtual Reality
- With the use of visual acoustic cameras of information, and sensors, are collecting useful data to build the 3 D model of the object.
- Although, while the data will be analyzed by expertized people and virtual devices, then is creating the virtual object.
- For example, one of the shipwrecks is Peristera’s shipwreck which is located in Alonissos.
Main Purpose: The main idea is the development of an underwater ROV with robotic arms (U archaeoROV which will have a maximum operational depth of 120 meters and consequently will be able to approach ancient shipwrecks or other underwater sites or submerged objects at a depth that cannot be reached and to function effectively as a research diver/archaeologist. The purpose of the u archaeoROV is to support underwater archaeological surveying and excavation in collaboration with or independently of underwater archaeologists with remote only operation from the support vessel.
- The u archaeoROV aims to build a prototype innovative RoV whose innovations are summarized in the haptic arms, which will be programmed to clean an object when it is detected (simulating movement of the archaeologist), operate the cleaning pipe (air lift), be able to lift an object
Main Idea: i ScubaDiving is the research and development of an innovative system through advanced technological methods for the remote virtual tour.
- Both divers and non-divers, touristic and cultural interest marine subjects. The project will also develop innovative services for the effective, efficient and remote digitization of maritime issues ( reefs, etc.).
- iScubaDiving aims to highlight, exploit, and protect the country’s rich marine wealth and a new technological method of three-dimensional 3 D) underwater digitization will be developed in a completely effective, efficient, and safe way, using common underwater cameras.
Underwater signage systems
EnaliaTec offers the construction of high-quality signs and labels for underwater use in a variety of materials (i e inox stainless steel, etc. size thickness and coatings based on the requirements of the application of use and the final user
- All signs are offered together with their anchorage system, buoys, ropes, screws, and other supporting accessories The metal elements are made of 3 mm thick INOX quality 316 L metal sheets.
- The cuts were made with a fiber laser and the configurations were made on CNC press.
- The stickers used are of the CAST type from the American company INOZETEK and were applied at a temperature of 90 degrees Celsius.
- The digital prints were made on a UV printer and then laminated with transparent CAST material.
- After the final assembly of the inscriptions, TITAN’s ceramic protector was applied to all surfaces in two layers (first layer PX 10 second layer VULKAN TX 155 with which the concentration of marine sediments is avoided.
Augmented Reality (AR) Leaflet
Is a printed leaflet that “comes to life” with the use of an application-software for mobile devices (i.e., an AR application). Through the application, digital content such as text, 3D models and video, enhances the user’s real environment.
- EnaliaTec received 5.000€ from the CCI4Tourism coupon.
- Augmented Reality (AR) Leaflet funded by the voucher Innovation CCI4Tourism coupon.
- In this way the company aims to enrich its marketing mix with innovative digital tools, which appeal the audience and are appropriate for services related to the sea and its bed.
- 3D profile of the sea bottom (3D seabed mapping) with DEVSS: 3D maps can be generated using visual data provided by either multiple cameras (stereo systems) or single cameras (monocular systems). 3D mapping process can be aided by navigation data if available or can be carried out using image processing only, ensuring ensure high accuracy for the resulting 3D models.
- 3D Reconstruction of underwater cultural heritage artefacts: Non-invasive 3D reconstruction techniques, such as the photogrammetry and the 3D laser scanning, can be applied to underwater archaeological sites. This way, highly faithful digital copies of the fields and their specific objects can be obtained.
- Immersive 3D Virtual Diving Content Creation and visualization systems: content creation and visualization hardware of 3D archaeological finds, supporting Virtual Immersions or any other software.
