Features of PowerDolphin

It will automatically scan and draw the underwater topographic maps for designated waters. It provides an accurate visual underwater data.
This underwater drone comes from PowerVision, A global leader focusing on UAV-related products and services including smart drones, data visualisation and forecasting, virtual reality and augmented reality. It also uses sonar, constructs maps of the seabed below, and can actually detect fish from up to 131 feet away and release bait upon detection. This is far more sophisticated than some of the other underwater drones we’ve reported on before. The PowerDolphin actually seems like it had clear intent behind its creation, namely, to save lives and catch fish, like a dolphin.
