Oceaneering International, Inc. announced that one of its divisions, Oceaneering Entertainment Systems, has unveiled its newest product, a transportation vehicle system, at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo November 13-16, 2018 in Orlando, Florida.
The REVO-GT is a unique vehicle system that uses self-guided, driverless group transit vehicles, each capable of transporting up to 24 passengers on a dedicated guideway allowing passengers to select from pre-programmed routes connecting different origins to one or more specific destinations.
The battery-powered REVO-GT is based on driverless automated guided vehicle (AGV) technology.
Its interior is climate controlled, and can maintain a comfortable environment for its passengers, even in extreme ambient conditions. Routes and destinations can be pre-programmed or passenger-selected.
Bill Bunting, Director, Business Development, Entertainment Systems, Oceaneering, said: “The move into AGV transportation for theme parks, campuses and business parks, even urban zones is a natural fit and opens up so much opportunity to serve a broader market hungry for transportation solutions that are clean, efficient, cost-effective and, most importantly, safe and reliable.”
The REVO-GT was developed in partnership with Netherlands-based 2getthere.
