Cellula Robotics Ltd. is proud to launch a new website and introduce their first Hovering Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (HAUV): Imotus-1.

Imotus-1 is a Hovering AUV specifically designed to operate in confined environments, in a range of fluids. The navigation solution incorporates Cellula's proprietary Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) algorithms, using data from a suite of sensors to calculate its location inside a confined, unknown environment. Imotus-1 carries a range of inspection sensors including a high resolution stills camera, ultrasonic thickness sensors and a light intervention cleaning tool. Imotus-1 is available for purchase or lease.
Eric Jackson, President of Cellula Robotics Ltd. said: "We are excited to be entering the HAUV market with a vehicle designed to solve specific inspection challenges in confined spaces. Over the past 18 months, Cellula has taken the strategic decision to develop this technology, building on our strong control systems experience. With the global AUV market expected to grow significantly in the coming years and a drive to reduce costs in the Oil and Gas sector, we believe the Imotus family of vehicles will provide a new and cost effective solution to many inspection challenges."

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
