While hull cleaning is a vital process to keep vessels running efficiently, it relies heavily on manpower. Odyssea aims to automate this by using a dual-propulsion technology that can perform hull inspection as well as cleaning services in water. The design also allows expansion to fly the device as a drone. Although there are existing Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) solutions, Odyssea’s amphibious modular design aims at making the device functional both in water and in air.
