Pixhawk-powered submarine shown at CES

From TTRobotics

Hydrodynamic Design
With professional hydrodynamic design, SEADRAGON can be freely in the water, underwater hover or free exploration can be easily implemented. The main compartment is airtight and cylindrically designed to protect important electronic equipment from moisture. Built-in huge capacity of battery offers longer run time (external power source as option).

Live 1080p HD Camera
SEADRAGON uses CUDA cores for real time vision and sensor fusion. You can use on-board cameras to do real-time HD video streaming of the underwater adventure.

Ideally Unlimited Control Distance (4G application)
SEADRAGON offers wired or 4G / LTE signal control. Provides end-to-end encryption with mutual certificate-based authentication and Video streaming function from multiple on-board cameras. You can control your SEADRAGON directly from your browser in any location.

Underwater Thruster Designed Specifically for Marine Robotics
Main tank body can adjust the counterweight to different environment of sea and fresh water. The brushless electric thruster system allows SEADRAGON to move quickly and quietly with a maximum forward speed of up to 2 knots.

High Scalability and Programmability
SEADRAGON uses Pixhawk autopilot chip, which can be programmed in Python (w/OpenCV) language. High compatibility and high scalability, you can customize the way you use SEADRAGON and build your own automated applications.

  • Logitech C9n0. H.264 encoding on camera - I guess Volta think it's faster or frees up some CPU. Which was relevant for a Pi or BBB, but I doubt it's noticeable on XU4 or TK1.
    The sub does look cool. I'd be interested to see the TTRobotics base price, for the vehicle only.
  • Craft looks great!  Not so sure about the 10 year old consumer webcam in the front.

  • Volta, it's too bad you're not also proud of the vehicle software you're taking advantage of.

  • Hi Volta,

    Looking at your specs, I wondered where the Cuda cores come in, since they are Nvidia manufacturted and you do not mention including Nvidia hardware.

    Regardless, nice hardware design. a lot more useful than Thunder Tigers "static" sub which is all I have seen so far, but also similar to Blue Robotics own BlueROV2.

    Best Regards,


  • @Volta Robots, what is the software in your base1 stack?
    Your website etc is very light on details.
  • Go Seadragon! Very proud it's powered by our BASE 1 stack! Blimp is coming soon! www.voltarobots.com
  • Powered by T100 Thrusters and ArduSub, I believe! Looks pretty neat.
