Danish software engineering specialist Eiva has released a new tool, NaviSuite Workflow Manager, for automatic data processing of large amounts of subsea data, with minimum human involvement.
With the Workflow Manager, repetitive tasks are automated and executed in parallel by the software. This means that data is processed faster, and crew members’ time is spent more efficiently on errors, interpretations and quality control.
The first performance measurements on real-life operations data and workflow setups have shown positive results, with 50 hours of data processed in less than 2 hours. This is 25 times faster than other, typical data processing setups, where the industry has been satisfied with being able to process 1:1, that is, process one hour of data in one hour.
This particular performance measurement was reached with six AUVs running continuously, in parallel. All the data brought in by these was processed with a single crew, as opposed to increasing the crew size accordingly.
