This is a leap forward in robotic control for an ROV industry standard tool.
June 15, 2017
BluHaptics, the software company pioneering new technology for augmented robotics, and J2 Subsea, an Acteon company and global supplier of subsea tooling and services, have formed a sales and distribution partnership for BluHaptics’ first commercially available product – a software solution to make the operation of underwater manipulator arms safer and more effective.
As part of the agreement, J2 Subsea will leverage its global presence and subsea industry expertise for the sale, distribution, customer support and joint marketing of BluHaptics’ software solution for underwater manipulator arms. Traditionally focused on subsea tooling (hardware), J2 Subsea is incorporating BluHaptics’ software into its suite of offerings to provide customers with a higher level of control and precision in the operation of costly hardware.
“Our partnership with J2 Subsea is a strategic move that allows us to continue focusing on the development of future products with applications on land and in space, while at the same time positioning our subsea product for rapid growth,” said Luke Wissman, vice president of business development and special programs for BluHaptics. “J2 has the subsea expertise and established relationships to efficiently connect our product with the companies who will benefit the most from it.”
BluHaptics’ engineers have integrated advanced technologies – including real-time modeling, operator assistance, and force feedback – into a unified platform for semi-automatic robotic control. Featuring a virtual interface and more user-friendly controls, this new system makes it significantly easier for operators to interact…
