TNA Actions

Localization Approaches for Underwater Autonomy
To study mesoscale structures, such as gyres or eddies, that are formed in the south of the island and the impact they have on the primary production of phytoplankton.

Provide University of Toulon scientists with access to the necessary state of the art infrastructures enabling them to realise experimentations in order to estimate the hydrodynamic parameters of an AUV
To develop a model to simulate the behaviour of an autonomous submarine glider when in operation
Develop and experimentally validate novel multi-AUV coverage algorithms that can handle currents and faults in the missions.
Test the coordinated mission control of heterogeneous ASVs in a convenient and remote way by adopting cloud-based technology
The TNA will provide an experimental validation and demonstration of low cost, miniature acoustic transceivers providing a flexible multi-user positioning framework to support AUV and diver operations.
Benchmarking, in an operational setting, the use of teams of autonomous underwater vehicles to improve the oceanographic data collection while reducing the logistical overhead for the human element.
Detect and map seabed seepages in the Levant Bay, Vulcano. In the context of the Marine Geosciences and Marine Robotics Summer School.
