Reefscout is a underwater drone for consumer usage. It's equipped a specialized motor system and a high resolution video camera. The drone can drift quickly in the sea, capturing the beautiful undersea landscape. This design is the consumer version of OceanLab's (Now Apium) Data Diver, still in the conceptual stages. Detailed information about Data Driver is available on Apium's website.
From science to consumer industry
Reefscout was one of the projects while I was working for Pull. OceanLab (Now Apium) is a swarm robotics company, its Data Diver is able to take video and collect information in the ocean for scientific purposes. OceanLab asked us to help design a consumer version, based on its scientific underwater drone. During the design process, we collaborated with OceanLab to study and test prototypes. The goal was keep the design simple and durable. I participated in most of execution stages, started and finalized the 3D model building. This project completed a foundation for our client to develop the next product.
