The latest from the greenroom
By leveraging artificial intelligence and advanced analytics, Greenroom Robotics is able to provide a superior maritime search and rescue capability, enabling more capable, robust and efficient search and rescue activities, ultimately saving lives at sea.
Greenroom has been flat out developing new products and solutions, and we have definitely dropped the ball on our blogs. But hopefully that is changing and here is the first of many blogs about an exciting Autonomous Surface Vessel (ASV) that is currently being constructed in North Queensland.
Over the last few weeks our Chief Technology Officer Harry Hubbert has been taking part in some prestigious online training initiatives. These events allowed Harry to provide students and fellow entrepreneurs with vital information about working in both the maritime technology field and a startup company in the current global environment. They were also great opportunities to promote Greenroom and the groundbreaking work that we are undertaking in the maritime technology sector.
Greenroom is moving increasingly into the maritime domain with our edge-computing and machine learning capabilities. We’re doing this as part of our ongoing R&D and also increasingly with industry partners who are looking to apply our capability to their unique applications. These projects are all exciting, but in the meantime we thought we would have an R&D day to test ourselves. We set out to develop a new application in under 24 hours to test our data pipeline, and explore feasibility for a future project.
I’m Vinayak, I joined the greenroom team at the start of this year as a robotics graduate, and so wanted to introduce myself. I’m an optimistic person yearning on a quest for knowledge and learning through various aspects in life.
In this article I am going to talk about a subject that is close to my heart. Maybe as I spent a great deal of my precious time in my final year of university at the Australian Maritime College studying this topic. This topic being “Estimating Sea Surface Temperature (SST) using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)”.
I haven’t seen a lot of fuss out there about the recent release (14 June 17) of the Lloyds Register (LR) Code for Unmanned Marine Systems (UMS). I only say this because it is the first real set of rules and regulations that have been applied to AUVs and USVs, and I think it is a pretty big deal.
GreenRoom Inflight Robotics (a subsidiary of GreenRoom Robotics) are undertaking an ambitious project combining Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), Computer Vision and Machine Learning. We are aiming to improve the way in which drones are applied in to a number of industries, and for varying applications.
My first venture into computer vision was in 2014 when I prototyped an automated sorting system for conveyor belts for a production factory in Indonesia. The goal was to sort through many tonnes of pebbles in order to find the best ones for a company making tiles destined for feature walls in luxury resorts around the world.
We’ve been busy over the last few months, and the blog posts haven’t been flowing as expected, but that’s because exciting things have been taking place in the background. Our network is growing and there’s increasing interest in our developments..
