Services and Applications
Underwater drones can provide unique visual insight into the condition of submerged civil construction works such as locks, quay walls or bridge foundations.
By combining aquatic drones (surface/underwater) with state of the art water quality sensors it’s possible to map the characteristics of the water. Water quality can vary significantly in space and also in depth.
Underwater drones (ROV) can dive into underwater environments and collect images of aquatic plants, fish and benthic populations.
At the surface, autonomous drones (ASV) can map the bathymetry of lakes and other water bodies using sonar technology. Underwater, imaging equipment (camera/sonar) on underwater drones can collect valuable information about the characteristics of the bottom.
Underwater drones can collect samples at any desired depth, at any point of water bodies.
Curious about how underwater looks like? Underwater drones can collect high definition images of underwater environments. If you’re diving, we can help document your adventure!
The video above is an overview of the various applications of underwater drones that INDYMO tested in recent years, as part of multiple projects and pilots, with the participation of multiple water authorities, municipalities and companies from the Netherlands. It presents some brief images of the locations visited, the sensors used, procedures, and finally some of the best underwater images captured with the underwater drone.
Great presentation by Rui Lima @INDYMO2015 'effects of floating infrastructure on #waterquality' at @WCFS2020 Find blue revolution inspiration @Climate_Scan https://t.co/VXQkydyglC.

Innovatieve startup @INDYMO2015 vanuit @tudelft is graag bereid om onderwaterdrones in te zetten om jullie kademuren kostenefficiënt preventief te inspecteren. @FlorisBoogaard @l_ruizendaal @VPdeltaNL @de_ingenieur @TsWaterMaritiem https://t.co/jMsHGPLvOP
