November 2017 – Cracked brickwork modeled in 3D

A brick lined tunnel was recently discovered to have developed cracks in the brick lining after over 100 years without movement. Vocean deployed the Falcon ROV with the tilting Photogrammetry and diffused lights frame.  The tunnel width was 2m by 2m height with a 1m radius arch roof. The tunnel at the location of the […]

Apr 2016 – Vocean Seaeye Falcon adds Ethernet

Thanks to the successful Fibre Optic Upgrade Vocean made to the Seaeye Falcon ROV  it was straightforward to utilise one of the spare umbilical fibres  to provide an Ethernet connection to sensors on the ROV.  In the first deployment this allows full control of the Photogrammetry camera system  however, with the addition of multiple  port […]

Feb 2016 – Dynamic Photogrammetry System

Susbsequent to  successfully achieving 3D visualisation with an experimental camera system last October. Vocean engineers have designed and manufactured  a complete  Photogrammetry System for the Falcon ROV.  This attaches to the front of the ROV. The stills cameras are mounted on a rotating bar which is driven from the ROV main camera tilt system. Thus […]

Oct 2015 – 3D Visualisation solution

At short notice, Vocean were requested to measure the width and depth of a suspected crack within a concrete lined pipe. Having considered numerous solutions ranging from simple measurement tools placed in view of the crack, to  laser based geometric methods, Vocean engineers decided on 3D visualisation.  By taking multiple still images from a variety […]
