Eurofleets+ participated in the 2022 European Marine Robotics & Applications Workshop hosted by the National Oceanography Centre on the 15th – 16th June. This workshop aimed to bring together a diverse range of speakers from ongoing EU funded research projects, industry stakeholders, policy makers and end users. The workshop provided an excellent opportunity for networking, dissemination of research projects and cross-fertilisation of ideas in marine robotics, enabling innovative technologies and applications. The event is the annual networking opportunity for European marine robotics researchers to come together show case what they have been working on and discuss new projects.
Eurofleets+ presented the second of its “Science Sessions” Eurofleets+ Joint Research Activities: Intelligent Robot Exploration, which explored the work carried out by the project and included updates on Intelligent AUV Mapping, presented by Rafael Garcia – UdG, AUV-ASV cooperation, presented by Natalia Hurtos – IQUA and USV & AUV cooperation for optimised deep-sea navigation, presented by Cyrille Gomez – Ifremer. An overview of the Eurofleets+ project and progress to date will also be provided.
