Just before the EMRA workshop, on the 11th of June, the SWARMs (Smart and Networking Underwater Robots in Cooperation Meshes) project consortium will organise “Conference on Novel Solutions for Underwater Vehicles in Autonomous Sea Operations.” The conference will be co-hosted by the Centre for Robotics & Intelligent Systems (www.cris.ul.ie).
The primary objective of the SWARMs project is to expand the use of underwater and surface vehicles (AUVs, ROVs, USVs) to facilitate the conception, planning and execution of maritime and offshore operations and missions.
The conference topics will include: development methodologies and novel designs for autonomous maritime missions, data modelling for underwater robotics vehicles, new solutions for sensors and processing algorithms for underwater environments, data processing, 3D mapping, landmark extraction, map matching, relocation, etc.
The event is free of charge and open to the public, if you find yourself in Limerick on the 11th of June, come and join us!
