Widely scalable Mobile Underwater Sonar Technology

Image

WiMUST (Widely scalable Mobile Underwater Sonar Technology) aims at conceiving and designing an intelligent team of cooperative autonomous marine robots, acting as intelligent sensing and communicating nodes of a reconfigurable moving acoustic network, that could drastically improve the efficacy of the methodologies used to perform geophysical and geotechnical acoustic surveys at sea.

Robotic subsea exploration technologies

Image

The ROBUST proposal aims to tackle the need of having an autonomous, reliable, cost effective technology to map vast terrains, in terms of mineral and raw material by developing sea bed in situ material identification through the fusion of two technologies, namely laser-based insitu element-analyzing capability merged with underwater AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) technologies for sea bed 3D mapping.

MARIS: Marine Autonomous Robotics for InterventionS

Image

The general objective of the MARIS project is studying, developing and integrating, technologies and methodologies enabling the development of underwater robotic systems for manipulation and transportation activities. The reference scenarios are those typical of the off-shore industy, for the underwater search and rescue operations, as well as for the underwater scientific missions. Within such an ambitious objective, the proposing instituitions also intend to experimentally demonstrate, in the form proof-of-concept, the achievable operational capabilities, integrating the research results within real experimental systems.

TRIDENT: Marine Robots and Dexterous Manipulation for Enabling Autonomous Underwater Multipurpose Intervention Missions

Image

TRIDENT proposes a new methodology to provide multipurpose dexterous manipulation capabilities for intervention operations in unknown, unstructured and underwater environments. The TRIDENT project is built on the top of two main concepts: 1) the use of a team of heterogeneous marine robot with complementary skills, an USV and an I-AUV, to achieve light intervention capabilities without the need for expensive support ships and 2) the use of a dexterous hand mounted on a redundant robot arm to achieve multipurpose manipulation capabilities.
