CEO of Rovco, Brian Allen, will be speaking at Subsea UK’s Life of Field Conference on the 6th November.
Brian founded Rovco from a career built on leading change, and the implementation of innovative ideas to solve client subsea problems. Brian has been working with subsea robotics on large offshore projects for over 10 years. He started his career as an ROV technical specialist in electronics, electrical systems, and networking, leading to managing the delivery of multi-million-pound ROV projects across the globe. He has completed thousands of subsea inspection, maintenance, and construction orientated tasks, and is now bringing new technology to solve the problems he encountered throughout his career.
Brian’s abstract is below.
Live 3D Vision – a ground breaking new subsea technology
Unlike many underwater scanning systems, live 3D vision unlocks the potential for scaled, true colour models of subsea infrastructure with millimetre accuracy. Based on high quality video survey data, it is low risk, using familiar operational methods and equipment.
Brian’s talk will look forward from current processed 3D approaches to the future live 3D enables, presenting some of Rovco’s R&D work.
Why have video when you can have a mm perfect, 3D engineered CAD model in full colour for the same price? 3D improves the quality of inspections, which in turn provides a better means of communicating this information and finding the right solution. Easily viewed and measured online, Rovco’s 3D models provide a shareable, common view of assets in seconds. 3D enables key metrics such as the distance between structure points, surface area and volume calculations, and the ability to compare past and present models to determine areas of change.
Our 3D systems are being developed to deliver results in near real-time, generating cost savings of up to 80% compared with traditional survey methods. At Rovco we believe that the demand for 3D and Artificial Intelligence solutions will increase in line with the growing need for accurate data for critical analysis – it is a huge breakthrough for the industry as a means to identify, diagnose, and provide solutions for underwater assets over their entire lifespan.
