Applications

Rovins Nano

Rovins Nano: a cost-efficient and compact INS for ROVs

iXblue Rovins Nano has been chosen by the University of Limerick’s Centre for Robotics & Intelligent Systems (CRIS) for the development of a new INS based navigation & control suite, OceanRINGS. Part of a larger institution known as MaREI, CRIS aims to research the use of smart automated ROVs for challenging marine applications.
