During the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019, PowerVision Technology Group announced its new water drone offerings, which include PowerDolphin, PowerRay, and PowerSeeker.
Capable of capturing 4K photography and video, PowerDolphin is equipped with both intelligent fishing functions and water mapping functions. With its external mounting equipment, the platform can find fish, lure fish, and perform troll fishing. It can also directly tow hooks and lure fish to any desired location. Additionally, PowerDolphin’s front nose has a 220-degree dual-joint rotation 4K camera, allowing it to capture photos or video above water and underwater.
“Whether it is thrilling water sports, an exciting bait dropping process, or the magnificent sea scenery below, all can be glanced at from the first-person view perspective,” PowerVision says of its PowerDolphin.
The images captured by PowerDolphin can be sent in real-time using ultra-long-range wireless 1080P image transmission to PowerVision’s multi-product dedicated APP Vision+. To achieve a flip camera preview and recording interface, users simply click on the Vision+ button.
PowerDolphin comes in three different packages— Standard, Explorer, and Wizard models—which are expected to be ready for shipment by the end of the first quarter of 2019.
“The PowerDolphin is a new lifestyle robot that is not only suitable for water sports, photography, and fishing,” says Wally Zheng, the founder, and CEO of PowerVision.
“It is a product that will help a scientist explore marine life in many different ways. From ocean reefs to animal observation the PowerDolphin is a multipurpose tool.”
The PowerSeeker intelligent fish finder helps anglers accurately determine active fishing spots by enhancing the ability to find fish with real-time detection within 131 feet underwater.
It can draw underwater topographic maps—a first in the marine drone industry—thanks to being equipped with an intelligent sonar device and GPS waypoint function.
