Remora Robotics has developed what is essentially an underwater robot vacuum cleaner. The robots have power and communication cables from a box attached to a fence above the water. Cleaning the pens is a demanding task, especially due to the challenging conditions that require robust equipment and components. However, through the use of artificial intelligence, the robots are continuously improving.
Live video and other data are primarily transmitted via Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) from Com4, which is fixed broadband delivered over the mobile network. Routers are attached to the fence above the pens. FWA can deliver very high speeds and has virtually unlimited data capacity (up to 3TB). Both 4G and 5G networks are used, with speeds up to 500 Mbit/s. Data is sent to the cloud and used by Remora Robotics' operations center in Stavanger to enhance the algorithms in the software that powers the robots.
