Marine automation.

From ships to the seafloor, robotic technology is making waves.

The maritime industry is embracing robotics technology. Autonomous underwater robots are being used to clean the underside of sea vessels, perform maintenance inspections on ships, and conduct dangerous deep-sea missions like seafloor exploration and ocean mapping. Robots are also having an impact above the surface. High-speed unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) are being used to transport freight across bodies of water securely, efficiently and cost-effectively - without the need for a human helmsman. The benefits of underwater robotics are plenty. Autonomous robots can reduce the reliance on human labor and lower resource costs, improve safety by performing dangerous yet essential underwater tasks, and gather rich, data-driven insights about marine environments. Rocos provides a robot operations platform to help you connect, monitor and coordinate your autonomous robots. We work with marine companies around the world, helping them to maximize returns from their robots and underwater vehicles and streamline operations.

  • Collect data on ocean environments
  • Observe, photograph and film marine life

Why use Rocos to manage autonomous robots?

Rocos is a cloud-based solution that helps you manage autonomous robots in marine environments - no matter how many different robots you have, or how deep underwater they go. With Rocos, you can coordinate your robots from a single platform, from any location - reducing complexities and costs, minimizing security risks and boosting efficiency. Training is streamlined too, with employees only needing to learn a single tool to manage all of the robots in their environment.


Rocos connects all of your robots into a single, integrated interface. This makes it easy to schedule tasks and manage missions - no matter how remote or far underwater they may be. Rocos comes with reliable and secure APIs, SDKs, and a configurable web portal, with cloud and local network connectivity out of the box.


Gain access to real-time data via LIDAR and other sensing payloads. Visualize your fleet in 3D models of your marine or shipping environment and stay informed on the health and status of your robots from any location. Craft your own dashboards that feature ultra low-latency telemetry, and configure the alerts and diagnostics to your business needs.


Take control of your robots - instantly, from where you need it. Quickly design and execute multi-robot missions underwater. Schedule critical tasks like underwater maintenance and safety checks. Rocos provides the tools needed to remotely access your robots, like teleoperation and low-latency video streaming.
