SWARMs

Smart and Networking Underwater Robots in Cooperation Meshes

SWARMs is an industry-led ECSEL-JU project, where large technology companies collaborate with SMEs specialised in the subsea, robotics and communication sectors, and universities together with research institutions ensure that the state-of-the-art innovations in these domains will rapidly make their way into market. SWARMs designed, developed and successfully demonstrated a platform for a new generation of autonomous maritime and underwater operations. The project results in reduced operational costs, increased safety of tasks assigned to divers and contributed to dealing with factors that threaten the offshore sector’s expansion.
