For the context of a mobile tracking system, an underwater acoustic positioning system was developed, using three hydrophones to compute the direction of an acoustic source relative to an Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV). The paper presents an algorithm for the Direction of Arrival (DoA) of an acoustic source, which allows to estimate its position. Preliminary results will be shown in this paper relative to the detection and identification (ID) of the acoustic sources, as well as an analysis of ...

Zooplankton plays a key-role on Earth’s ecosystem, emerging in the oceans and rivers in great quantities and diversity, making it an important and rather common topic on scientific studies. Given the numbers of different species it is not only necessary to study their numbers but also their classification. In this paper a possible solution for the zooplankton in situ detection and classification problem in real-time is proposed using a portable deep learning approach based on Convolutional Neura...

The overall aim of the ROSM project is the implementation of an innovative solution based on heterogeneous autonomous vehicles to tackle maritime pollution (in particular, oil spills). These solutions will be based on native microbial consortia with bioremediation capacity, and the adaptation of air and surface autonomous vehicles for in-situ release of autochthonous microorganisms (bioaugmentation) and nutrients (biostimulation). By doing so, these systems can be used as the first line of the r...

Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASVs), operating near ship harbors or relatively close to shorelines must be able to steer away from incoming vessels and other possible obstacles, be they dynamic or not. To do this, one must implement some type of multi-target tracking and obstacle avoidance algorithms that lets the vehicle dodge obstacles. This paper presents a radar-based multi-target tracking system developed for obstacle detection in a small unmanned surface vehicle. The system was designed for...

The exploration of water bodies from the sea to land filled water spaces has seen a continuous increase with new technologies such as robotics. Underwater images is one of the main sensor resources used but suffer from added problems due to the environment. Multiple methods and techniques have provided a way to correct the color, clear the poor quality and enhance the features. In this paper, we present the work of an Image Cleaning and Enhancement Technique which is based on performing color co...

Over the last few years, oil spill incidents occured with some regularity during exploration, production and transportation, causing a large economic and ecologic impact in the world community. To minimise these impacts and reduce the time response of the initial mitigation process, autonomous vehicles, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) can be used to perform oil spill monitoring and mitigation.This paper presents the design and implementation of a multirotor UAV capable of identifying and ...

Abstract. The project Viable Alternative Mine Operating System (iVAMOS!) develops a novel underwater mining technique for extracting inland mineral deposits in flooded open-cut mines. From a floating launch and recovery vessel a remotely-operated underwater mining vehicle with a roadheader cutting machine is deployed. The cut material is transported to the surface via a flexible riser hose. Since there is no direct intervisibility between the operator and the mining machine, the data of the sens...
