Subsea industries, such as Marine Renewables or Oil & Gas, have been paving the way for safer and smart inspection operations underwater in order to improve efficiency while reducing their carbon footprint. If you’re part of this journey you may already be aware that this will require planned subsea operations to be performed by unmanned systems. You’ve probably heard about simulation, remote control, and intelligent vehicles. You’ve certainly been told you need data. Indeed, if you are taking part in this journey, I’m sure you feel data hungry today.
