Fugro’s subsea vision technology makes installing and positioning structures faster, safer and more reliable

In his latest piece for Subsea & Offshore Service (SOS) magazine, Sjoerd Butter explains how augmented reality (AR) solutions such as Fugro’s QuickVision are revolutionising the installation and positioning of subsea assets. By moving away from traditional bulky and battery-dependent positioning equipment, which must be fixed to the asset, vision-based technology is providing the marine industry with safer, more efficient operations and longer operational windows.
