MORPH FP7 Project field trials in Toulon conclude successfully
Five days of trials are nearing the end, and Ifremer is proud to have hosted this achievement. All six vehicles brought by the project partners have worked flawlessly; the teams have accomplished a huge amount of work to integrate these vehicles into one single Morph system.
All objectives at this stage of the project have been achieved, and a milestone has been set in underwater robotics, running a heterogeneous fleet of autonomous vehicles – from 35 to 300kg – in a formation based solely on acoustic network communication and range detection.
Thursday evening all team members have then shown their individual diving skills! Today a week of trials come to an end, five long and hot days, people will leave tired but satisfied, and the community of this project has grown even stronger together.
Dear friends, congratulations to all and come home safely!
