Positioning system

It is particularly important in search operations to know what areas have already been searched by the diving robot and the diving robot’s current location.

An object or a person can be located easily onshore by GPS. Unfortunately the GPS signal cannot be transmitted under the surface of the water.

Acoustic solutions are used for locating positions in such situations.

The exact position of the robot can be calculated with the aid of a transmitter that sends an acoustic signal to a receiver in the diving robot and receives the return signal.
