Houston Mechatronics are developing the next generation of all all-electric subsea AUV/ROV transforming robot specifically for use on Superyachts. HMI’s YachtNaut, a smaller class of robot compared to the bigger commercial versions; Aquanaut MK1 and Aquanaut MK2. All the robots use HMI’s Azimov, a law based system for all HMI technology which ensures that the robot interacts with people and assets, safely and predictably. All the robots are fitted with all-electric manipulators that have intelligent, one-click functions, deploying the latest in HMI’s Commander autonomy architecture.

 

YachtNaut

  • 500 msw rated

  • 12 hours endurance

  • 50 km range

  • 2 x Blueprint Lab 7 function manipulators

o   10 kg lift @ 900 mm reach

  • YachtNaut is specifically developed for ease of use off of a Superyacht and can be readily launched and recovered by 2 crew members.

 

Aquanaut Mk1

  • 500 msw rated

  • 8 - 10 hours endurance

  • 30 km range

  • 2 x HMI AQ Arms

o   25 kg lift @ 1500 mm reach

  • Crane or davit launched and recovered.

 

Aquanaut Mk2

  • 3,000 msw rated

  • 24 hour endurance

  • 200 km range

  • 2 x HMI Olympic Arms

o   127 kg lift @ 1850 mm reach

  • Crane or davit launched and recovered.

 

All HMI transforming robots are based on the same design principles and all share the same operating architecture.
