Project: Autonomous Robotic Sea-Floor Infrastructure for Bentho-Pelagic Monitoring

Acronym ARIM (Reference Number: MarTERA-2017_01)
Duration 01/06/2018 - 31/07/2021
Project Topic The aim is to establish a science-based infrastructure for continuous online monitoring of the ocean interior including benthic, pelagic and the demersal habitats. Merging cable-based observation technologies, mobile robotic seafloor technologies and image processing and modelling methods into one operational autonomous product will renew monitoring and support the assessment of human impact in the marine environment. Compared to today’s ship-based systems, this new technology will drastically reduce monitoring costs associated to offshore and coastal industries.
