Electric robotic vehicle now even smarter

Published:  10 February, 2017

Saab Seaeye says the winning formula of the Falcon – one of the most successful underwater electric robotic vehicles of its class in the world – has received a considerable boost.

Saab Seaeye says it has enhanced the Falcon’s already smart intelligent control system with its advanced iCON behaviour-based intelligent control architecture and this means the Falcon can now host many new features, making it an advanced platform for further automation and behaviour-based software development.

The company says station-keeping and fine position adjustment is an important new attribute that reduces the operator’s workload by allowing them to concentrate on the task at hand and fitting a Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) and interface node has made this possible and also it is also now possible to add higher accuracy sensors for heading, depth and altitude.
