The science behind project ariadna

TO INNOVATE, ONE NEEDS TO COMBINE SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING WITH IMAGINATION.

[ AN INNOVATIVE IDEA ]

The GPS signal doesn’t penetrate deeper than a few millimeters below the water surface. It’s useless for divers.

Project Ariadna is based on a hybrid method: read the GPS position on the surface, then live-track the location of the diver using mathematical algorithms.

[ THE MATH ]

The system reads data from 11 independent sensors 400 times every second. Then it processes the input through a sophisticated set of algorithms to precisely calculate the movements of the diver.

As a result, the diver gets the exact position on the map, live, at any second of the dive. Precisely and without any external transmitters.

[ THE SIMPLICITY ]

The Ariadna navigation device will be as simple as any dive computer and effortless to use even in a stressful or unexpected situation. So what the diver sees on Ariadna’s large screen is simple: go straight on, turn left, turn right, you are here. The next point of interest is 10 meters ahead.

Ariadna will make you see, even when you can’t see anything.
