FRAMEWORK ROBOTICS – THE FLEET

WHAT YOU NEED

IS WHAT WE BUILD

Designing a fully customisable system means nothing less than every product is built according to your specific needs.

BUDDY (Observation-Midsize Class ROV)

Your remote and modular underwater vehicle

BUDDY is a powerful sensor platform with high adaptability. Its high payload capacity and maximum operating depth is unique in the observation class and enables an extremely wide range of operations.

Equipped with a pressure-neutral infrastructure as standard, BUDDY can be deployed in water depths up to 6,000 meters. The powerful thrusters in the working plane provide tremendous agility and allow stationing even in strong currents or turbulence. The sensor platform offers programmable interfaces for the integration of external sensors, which can be used for all common protocols (e.g. RS232, SPI, UART, Ethernet, I2C, CAN).

BUDDY is portable due to its low dead weight and can be loaded with up to 18 kg payload. In addition, the optional payload level can be detached from the working level in just a few simple steps. Equipped as standard with the adaptive MISSION CONTROL software, BUDDY can be operated intuitively. Just like the entire framework and infrastructure of the system, the user interface can be customized to meet the needs of the operator.

Social Media

Social Media Plugins

General information

Social media plugins normally lead to the IP address of each visitor to a page being collected by theses services immediately and the users having their subsequent browsing history recorded. This may even happen if you do not click on the button.

To prevent this, we use the Shariff method. Thus, our social media buttons only establish the direct contact between the social network and you only once you click on the respective share button. If you are already registered with a social network, Facebook and Google+ do not require a new window for this. Twitter will show a pop-up window, in which you can still edit the text of the tweet.

Thus, you can publish our content in social networks without them being able to put together complete browsing profiles. The Shariff method is already being used by many websites in order to protect their users.

But, at the latest, when you follow the link to the social media site, your data will be broadcasted to that site. The social media site will normally store a cookie in your browser and to your account information there, especially, if you are logged into your social media account on the site. The social media site can analyse your use of the platform and your browsing habits and will use these for targeting advertisements based on your interests. That can lead to ads being shown to you when browsing in- and outside of the social media site. Please inform yourself about the use of your data on these sites and use them only, when you agree to that use of your data, that happens on that social media site, in particular, when you are not using that social media site for the first time. We have added links to all the privacy policies of the social media site for your information.

Facebook

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, we use plugins of the social network of Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Irland. Due to the Shariff method, Facebook will only learn your IP address and your visit to our website, once you will have clicked on the button. If you confirm the plugin while being logged in at Facebook, Facebook may attribute your use to your user account.

Your data will be forwarded by Facebook Ireland on the ground of the standard contractual clauses to Facebook USA.

The collection and use of your data which is then possibly carried out by Facebook is beyond our knowledge or control. You will find further information in Facebook’s privacy policy at https://en-gb.facebook.com/policy.php.

Regarding the general approach to cookies and their deactivation, we refer you to our general information in this Privacy Policy.

Linkedin

Based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect online offering and its design and optimisation in an economically efficient manner pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, we use plugins of the social network LinkedIn, provided by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, as a subsidiary of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Ct. Ste. 200 Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. With the Shariff method, LinkedIn will only learn of your IP address and your visit to our website once you have clicked on the button. If you confirm the plugin while being logged into LinkedIn, LinkedIn may attribute your use to your user account.

The data collected by Linkedin may be transferred by Linkedin to countries outside of the EU, in particular to the USA.

We have neither knowledge of, nor any influence on the possible collection and processing of your data by LinkedIn. Further information can be found in LinkedIn's privacy policy at: https://www.LinkedIn.com/legal/privacy-policy?_l=de_DE. For the general approach to cookies and their deactivation as well as regarding the passing of data to third parties, particularly to the USA, we refer you to our general information in this Privacy Policy.

We refer with links to our social media presences. When you follow any such link to the social media site, your data will be broadcasted to that site. The social media site will normally store a cookie in your browser and to your account information there, especially, if you are logged into your social media account on the site. The social media site can analyse your use of the platform and your browsing habits and will use these for targeting advertisements based on your interests. That can lead to ads being shown to you when browsing in- and outside of the social media site. Please inform yourself about the use of your data on these sites and use them only, when you agree to that use of your data, that happens on that social media site, in particular, when you are not using that social media site for the first time. We have added links to all the privacy policies of the social media site for your information.

Our website uses links to our presence in the social network of Facebook by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Irland. It is just a normal link.
