Notilo Plus launches iBubble, the world’s first intelligent autonomous and fully wireless underwater drone

The French company, an expert in intelligent underwater exploration, is now selling its autonomous submarine drone worldwide, enabling anyone to shoot exceptional underwater images

Marseille, France, October 29, 2018 - Notilo Plus, a company developing intelligent, autonomous underwater systems, today announces the global commercial launch of iBubble, the world's first fully wireless, autonomous and intelligent underwater drone. iBubble can accompany divers for up to an hour and up to 197 feet depth, acting as their personal cameraman, enabling superior underwater imaging.


This novel remotely operated vehicle (ROV) was designed using Notilo Plus' patented underwater localization technology, enabling subaquatic adventures without tethers. It comes with an advanced AI system, offering total autonomy and self-learning capabilities. iBubble is equipped with a state-of-the-art obstacle avoidance system, which allows it to smoothly follow a diver, while obtaining images of unparalleled quality for personal or commercial use. It features real-time image recognition, a unique stabilization system as well as direct surface control, bringing outstanding performance to underwater imaging.

The iBubble ROV is an environmentally-conscious device. It does not disturb the fragile marine ecosystem thanks to its minimal noise emission levels and its special obstacle avoidance capability. iBubble can be used for sports and entertainment filming, diving instruction, wildlife protection, search and rescue operations, naval or underwater infrastructure maintenance and subsea patrolling.

"We are excited to introduce to the world the first fully wireless, autonomous underwater drone," says Nicolas Gambini, CEO of Notilo Plus. "With the countless cutting edge technologies brought by the iBubble, coupled with its ability to bring exceptional pictures and video footage, this is a remarkable and versatile device for any diving activity."

The first batches of iBubble drones will be delivered to the first customers, including the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign supporters, from mid-November 2018.

The device is now available for order globally. New customers can make a 30% deposit payment for the next shipment, scheduled for January 2019. The retail price of the iBubble is $4,099, when purchased from the company's website: https://ibubble.camera/shop/

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
