What (and whose) problem is your company trying to solve?
Current two-joystick controllers are overly complex, they’re fragile and confusing, take months to train, and often too many operators are needed to get the job done. NSW Police Force, Manager of Innovation tested the ROVorb and found that different devices on land, sea, or air having different controllers creates difficulties in training, retaining skills, carrying gear, power, connection standards, and maintenance. Requiring two hands to operate locks people with limited dexterity and limbs from controlling devices. We want to make technology more accessible to all users.
