The company directors have been running highly successful private businesses in Australia for over 26 years. TBSD Pty Ltd, has been operating since 2008 as a National Telstra Distributor for Voice, Data networks and Information Technology services wining multiple national awards over a 10 year period.
In 2018 the company started introducing new technologies in a move to provide more solutions and increase the business reach through both direct and indirect sales channels. In more recent times we have undergone a rebranding under the “Edge” group to better profile a broader range of “leading edge” products and services.
With the huge growth in new leading edge technologies, such as Unmanned / Autonomous Vehicles and Artificial Intelligence (AI), EdgeROV was formed to focus on the delivery of Remotely Operated Vehicle solutions to the Australia and New Zealand market places.
In partnering with Nortilo Plus from France, we have establish the first of four planned product group releases being Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) and Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV). Notilo Plus appointed EdgeROV as their Australian distribution and service agents which means we not only supply their unique AI driven technology to the Australian market place but provide full service and support their iBubble and Seasam products and accessories.
SMARTER, AND MORE EFFICIENT
As previously different technologies merge due to the “digitalisation revolution” we see new streamlined and more efficient products and applications being developed. For example Voice and Data networks were once separate networks, now they use common platforms and end user devices.
Two of the biggest drivers in technology convergence in the digital world has been (AI) Artificial Intelligence and (ML) Machine Learning. AI and ML have contributed to developing a smarter, more efficient and a more connected digital world that we all experience everyday, mostly without us even knowing.
SMARTER, AND MORE EFFICIENT
Both AI and ML have also been prime drivers in the development of applications around unmanned remotely operated vehicles. These can be split into four categories, those that Fly, (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle: UAV), Drive on the ground, (Unmanned Ground Vehicle: UGV), Operate on the water surface, (Unmanned Surface Vehicle: USV) and Operate below water, (Unmanned Underwater Vehicle: UUV). These four main vehicle types can all be placed under the one category of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV’s).
They all use the same or similar ways to communicate and operate including GPS, WIFI, Bluetooth and other technologies with many manufactures also developing their own designed an d patented solutions. Add to this the many 3 rd party made industry or project specific applications which can be added to an ROV units and you have very powerful solutions for just about any application.
EdgeROV has chosen to distribute French company, Notilo Plus’s, range of Underwater Unmanned Vehicles (UUV’s) because of the unique and patented smart technology they have developed for the UUV industry. One example is the software that enables the UUV to follow and video record a diver without the need for a tether or cables means this is the only true underwater drone in market today.
EdgeROV Australia are thrilled to be able to work with Notilo Plus as their Australian Distributor given our location in Cairns, the Dive capital of Australia. With direct flights to all capital cities plus an abundance of accommodation access to EdgeROV customer training facilities in Cairns makes the location perfect.
