Five Senses or More: Creating a Digital Approach through Sensor Fusion

It’s one of those bits of science education drilled into us when we’re young – identifying  and understanding our five senses. We take them for granted every day as our brains synthesize multiple data streams so we understand where we are and what we’re experiencing. Any one sense is valuable but when they work in […]

How We Interact with Autonomous Vehicles – The Experts Weigh In

We can’t consider enabling vehicles with increasing levels of technology and capabilities without addressing the way we interact with those vehicles. – Ben Kinnaman, President and CEO of Greensea Systems Ben’s observation during the November 8 IEEE Tech Insider webinar, “Realizing New Potentials in Miniature Subsea Robotics,” strikes a chord as we look at how […]

Smokey and the Bandit Redux – Beer Delivery Goes Autonomous

We’ve come a long way from the era of Burt Reynold, Sally Field, and Jerry Reed delivering bootleg beer across state lines with the police in hot pursuit. Joking aside, the concept of driverless long-haul trucks points to a significant application for autonomous vehicle technology. As anyone who has driven on a major interstate like […]

Don’t Put All Your Eggs in One Basket – A Truth for SATCOM, Too

“Do Not Put All Your Ships in One Satellite Network,” a recent article by Martyn Wingrove in Marine Electronics & Communications, makes the case that commercial fleets should not rely on a single SATCOM provider. He cites real-world constellation complications, including launch failures, technical issues during deployment, and operational snafus post-launch for his reasoning. Essentially, he’s […]

Accurate navigation on a budget – Getting more out of your navigation systems with sensor fusion

As small observation and inspection class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) become more and more capable, they have been able to take on a wider range of tasks, including inspection with HD video and sonar, object search and recovery, and ultrasonic testing. They can go places larger ROVs can’t and can even perform essential tasks previously […]

The Big Ones You’ll Never Toss Back – Skipper Gentry, Sportfishing, and Staying Connected

Sometimes, satellite communications is a business necessity. Sometimes satellite TV is just the perfect way to stay entertained. And sometimes, like with Captain Skipper Gentry, they are the perfect combination for work and play. As the captain of the 43-foot Carolina Gentleman and a long-time professional sportfisherman, Skipper Gentry knows what it’s like to pass […]

Social Boating – Expanding Your World While on the Water

Social boating: the ability to send and receive live digital information, data, images and video while on the water. Being connected while on your boat means many things — from telling friends and family you’re safe during an ocean crossing to posting the photo of a swordfish you just reeled in on a daylong outing […]

Hear from the Experts: Miniature Subsea Robotics & Sensor Fusion

Most people working with unmanned and autonomous systems, whether on land, in the air or under the sea, believe that true autonomous navigation capability will require a solution using sensor fusion – that is, the integration of different and complementary sensors with each acting as backup to the others. In the new IEEE webinar, “Realizing […]

KVH Interns: “Cream of the Crop”

Excellent!! Impressive results! If a college professor scribbles that high praise in the margin of a paper summarizing a student’s work at the end of a term, one can safely conjecture that real learning has taken place and a promising career looms on the horizon. But if those singular compliments come at the end of […]
