Underwater Robotics

[Open soon]

Work description

Conceive and develop systems for underwater location based on acoustic processes, with a view to creating adaptive mechanisms that aim to improve the processes of relative location between two or more robotic devices. Implement the developed processes, focusing their implementation on embedded computer systems intended for subsea vehicles or other small robotized devices. This activity will involve the development of dedicated digital systems for signal processing, built on integrated platforms combining CPUs and FPGAs. Validate and characterize the systems developed with field tests and prepare the technical documentation on the systems developed, namely with regard to the characterization of the developed processes. Support the realization of experiments in a real environment and the writting of scientific Papers. Write the grant activity report.
