From transport, energy and fishing to high growth marine sectors of seabed mining, aquaculture and offshore energy, emerging information ecosystems will transform utilisation and sustainability of ocean resources.

In EXPOSURES, we demonstrate how on-demand autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) can drive intelligent data analytics to rapidly assess environmental processes and impacts in marine waterways. The result will be create new marine information ecosystem that exploits underwater IoT infrastructures such as those offered by the European SUNRISE facility.

Advancing Autonomous Operations: From Outer to Inner Space

A new edition of the University of Porto Oceans Distinguished Lecture Series will take place next Friday in the rectory building of the University of Porto. This time the speaker will be Kanna Rajan on Advancing Autonomous Operations: From Outer to Inner Space.

Sérgio Ferreira and Paulo Dias participated in the Gunnerus exercises in Trondheim from 24th of April to the 30th of April. The experiment served as a first trial in the MBR radio integration that will be tested during the Networked Oceans project. The initial integration with X8 UAVs was successful and now must be extended to other systems in the toolchain.

Have you seen our new videos?

Take a look at our Youtube channel, and see a short videos about the UAV-X8, Neptus - command and control software and also see how our vehicles behave in multi-vehicles operations, with the Mariner-01 (our quadcopter) providing a privileged view of the LAUVs out on the water.

Sea trials where the NECSAVE system was validated in the water to control ASVs (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) and AUVs (Porto University).

Each node in the system is running a NECSAVE stack comprising planning and execution, allowing tasks to be distributed automatically throughout a team of heterogeneous vehicles.

The Anthropocene Institute aims to provide a helpful resource for fishermen and mariners to use on the water and to enhance situational awareness of regulations and conservation measures for long-term marine management.
Partnering with the NOAA Marine Protected Area Center and Navionics they hope to provide comprehensive and accessible MPA data for marine resource managers and the general public.
