Method and apparatus for deployment of ocean bottom seismometers

ActiveUS20060159524A1Effective movementEasy to deploySeismic signal receiversBuoysOcean bottom seismometerOrbit
A method and apparatus for deployment and retrieval of ocean bottom seismic receivers. In one embodiment, the apparatus comprises a carrier containing a plurality of receivers attached to a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). The carrier comprises a frame in which is mounted a structure for seating and releasing said receivers. The structure may comprise a movable carousel or a movable conveyor or fixed parallel rails or a barrel. In the case of the barrel, the receivers are axially stacked therein. The structure is disposed to deliver said receivers to a discharge port on said frame, where the receivers are removable from said carrier. The apparatus includes a discharge mechanism for removing said receivers from said carrier. In another embodiment, the method comprises the steps of loading a carrier with a plurality of receivers, attaching said carrier to an ROV, utilizing said ROV to transport the carrier from a surface vessel to a position adjacent the seabed and thereafter utilizing said ROV to remove receivers from said carrier and place the receivers on the seabed. In yet another embodiment, an ROV adjacent the seabed engages a deployment line extending from the vessel. The deployment line is used to guide receivers attached thereto down to the ROV for “on-time” delivery and placement on the seabed.

Method for routing a robotic apparatus to a service station and robotic apparatus service system using thereof

A method for routing a robotic apparatus to a service station and robotic apparatus service system using thereof are disclosed in the present invention, wherein the system comprises at least one service station and a robotic apparatus. The service station is capable of providing charging service and has a signal emitter array which functions to emit communication signals for guiding the robotic apparatus back to the service station. The robotic apparatus has a signal receiver for searching and detecting the communication signal emitted from the service station and determines the moving direction according to the intensity of the communication signal received by the signal receiver so as to arrive at the service station smoothly through the method disclosed in the present invention. Once the robotic apparatus arrives at the service station, the service station may provide service such as charging to the robotic apparatus while the robotic apparatus may standby to wait for the accomplishment of charging. By means of the method and system provided in the present invention, the robotic apparatus may route to the service station in a shortest way by rectilineal motion and contact to the service station to receive the service in arbitrary angle.
