TWIN roBOTs for cooperative underwater intervention missions

TWINBOT is a project that aims to develop a new kind of I-AUVs able to work autonomously in a cooperative way.   The underwater inspection, maintenance and repair operations are becoming the main focus of the research in underwater robotics. Due to the desire of using small, autonomous vehicles instead of heavy work-class remotely operated vehicles, these tasks need a new definition and approach, to overcome the limits of the…

Deepfield project: Short-term scientific mission

From the 13th of February until the 12th of March, Eduardo Soarez, an INES TEC pre doc researcher, has carried out a shot term scientific mission at CIRS facilities within the framework of Deepfield project.   The main focus of the short-term scientific missions is to engage INESC TEC young researchers in a assignment of a deep learning topic related to the previous thematic workshop, in which our case was…

TNA experiments in the VICOROB’s infrastructures

From the 2nd to the 6th of March, a team of researchers and students of the Université de Toulon have been carrying out experiments at the facilities of the CIRS.   These tests allowed them to collect real data regarding the dynamic behaviour of SPARUS AUV which will be compared with the data from the simulator they are developing in order to improve their predictions.   This action has been possible…

DEEPFIELD Thematic Workshop: Autonomous Underwater Intervention

The first Thematic Workshop called “Autonomous Underwater Intervention” took place on February 11th and 12th within the framework of the European project Deepfiled.   Pere Ridao, Patryk Cieslak and Guillem Vallicrosa run the training in the Girona’s Science and Technology Park. During the event, both INESC TEC and UdG students expanded their knowledge about the intervention and manipulation of an autonomous underwater vehicle. This training was conducted with a simulation,…
