4-2G-Robotics-ULS-200-underwater-laser-scanner-in-action

Seatronics, an Acteon company, has secured the first UK sale of 2G Robotics' ULS-200 underwater laser scanner. The system was purchased by HR Wallingford; a world-leading independent civil engineering and environmental hydraulics organization, based in Oxfordshire.

Adil Ali, product sales manager, Seatronics, said, “HR Wallingford is a leader in global hydrological research and purchased 2G Robotic’s ULS-200 system based on the impressive level of resolution and accuracy it delivers. Seatronics has an excellent track record of customer service and technical support and provided close client liaison in both commercial and technical matters leading up to the sale.”

The ULS-200 is 2G Robotics' mid-range underwater laser scanner. The system has a lightweight, compact design and low power and bandwidth requirements, enabling simple integration and operation. The system generates 3D point cloud models. From these models, highly accurate and precise measurements can be captured for detailed analysis of underwater structures and environments.

HR Wallingford recently opened the Fast Flow Facility, one of the world's largest marine test facilities, with a unique, dual-channel flume for wave-current-sediment modelling. The company conducted trials with the ULS-200 at the facility, with technical support from Seatronics and 2G Robotics. HR Wallingford subsequently purchased a ULS-200 and has successfully deployed it in marine renewables projects and scour research.

Prof. Richard Whitehouse, technical director, HR Wallingford, said, “We were impressed with the ULS-200's capabilities and results during our trials. The 3D visualizations generated by the ULS-200 are providing highly accurate models from which detailed analysis and research can be conducted. The ULS-200 is greatly assisting with our projects – including those in the marine renewables sector – delivering significant benefits in accuracy and efficiency. The ULS-200 is a definite asset to our facility.”
