Reach Robotics at UI2020

Reach Robotics was excited to attend Underwater Intervention in New Orleans for another year, exhibiting as part of the Tech Showcase for 2020! Our display included interactive demos of our manipulators, including our latest release, the Reach 7. This new seven-function arm generated plenty of interest alongside the compact and reliable Reach 5 Mini, showing off their dexterity and versatility by collecting business cards and grasping beer cans alike!

Highlights of the event included meeting leaders in the underwater-tech industry and learning how other inspiring businesses are finding solutions to the many challenges of underwater operations. An unexpected but memorable moment was the live band which set the upbeat tone of the event!

If you missed out on seeing Reach Robotics’s innovative Manipulators and Master Arm technology, be sure to come visit us at Oceanology International 2020 in London, Mar 17-20 for more interactive demonstrations!

Command Pods

Command Pods are a pair of space mouse controllers comprising of left and right units. They are designed to attach to an ROV control tablet and allow full system control from one interface. The Command Pod configuration simplifies control of a dual-manipulator system as operators are able to intuitively control both arms, while still piloting the vehicle.
The joystick model allows for arms to be directed towards a target while the system automatically maps the arms configuration along that path.


Compatible with all Reach Robotics manipulators, the Master Arm controller is available in five and seven-function models to mimic your robotic arm. Achieve unparalleled precision and accuracy while undertaking complex tasks including:
  • Precise placement of probes for crack and corrosion monitoring.
  • Place and recover objects with unmatched dexterity and minimised
  • Attach hooks and shackles consistently.
  • Reach confined areas unreachable with lower degree-of-freedom manipulators
    and traditional control methods.
