Automatic mission planning User can pre-program the survey mission with the base station on the bank. The USV and instruments can conduct surveys autonomously and send back real-time data. User can also drive the USV manually by a remote controller.
Autonomous survey platform ME40 is designed for hydrographic survey with great efficiency.
By replacing conventional workboat, autonomous platform is able to acquire bathymetry data without time-consuming and human safety risk.
Mission planning, navigation control and real-time data acquisition are integrated in one package software, offering maximum efficiency to surveyors.
- Mission planning and autonomous survey - Existing GNSS instrument can be installed - Data acquisition integrated in USV software - Customized option for other instruments - Maximum 5m/s speed - Excellent performance in shallow water

Intelligent collision avoidance With the ultrasonic sensors, the ME40 USV can detect and bypass obstacles 10 meters ahead to avoid collision. In manual mode, user can observe water environment by the real-time video feed to better avoid obstacles.
Higher speed, less maintenance With a plug and play design, its high speed outboard motor is easy to maintain.
