High Definition Underwater Mapping with Underwater Drone Autonomous Navigation

FullDepth Co., Ltd., a startup company, has developed an industrial-grade underwater drone that can automatically navigate and map the seabed using its internal development of the “DiveUnit300” industrial underwater drone as a center. This achievement was the result of the National Research and Development Agency’s New Energy Industry Technology Integrated Development Organization (NEDO) “Research and Development Startup Support Project/Product Commercialization Alliance (PCA)” in 2022.

The company stated, “We will use the industrial-grade underwater drone ‘DiveUnit300’ to automatically navigate and complete seabed mapping while shooting underwater, advancing global underwater robotics technology, and contributing to the realization of sustainable development in society.”

The company made some modifications to the industrial underwater drone “DiveUnit300” and used the camera’s position and video to conduct seabed mapping. During the seabed mapping process, the underwater drone automatically navigated at a depth of 1.5m, captured 635 images from the position information of the aircraft and the video taken by the camera, and processed them. After combining the images, they created a high-definition seabed orthophoto, achieving high-definition seabed mapping. In addition, they also conducted verification experiments using multi-beam sonar and achieved automatic navigation of the underwater drone at a height of 2.0 meters.
