Aquanaut’s manipulation capabilities are powered by machine vision. It’s no big secret and lot’s of robotics companies today use optical data to help robots make semi-autonomous decisions. Aquanaut has a pretty unique machine vision system as the vehicle operates in the ocean. That requires both classic stereo cameras, light-based point cloud sensors, and sonar. The […]

Business has been pretty crazy over the last few months! We have just about doubled our headcount since April and have made considerable strides in all of our technical developments around the company. 4 years ago, when HMI was first formed, the company’s mission was simple: Use our engineering talent to solve complex problems for […]
Ahead of our Aquanaut announcement yesterday, IEEE interviewed our CTO, Nic Radford, to learn more about what Aquanaut is and why we decided to make it.
What comes to mind when you think of robots? Mechanical arms along assembly lines? Voice-activated, internet-capable technologies? Humanoid creations able to interact with those around them? Modern perceptions vary greatly from the technology’s portrayal in 1960s-era sci-fi — and with good reason. As our capabilities continue to advance, robots are increasingly becoming part of people’s […]
