EU project subCULTron successfully concluded: Bio-inspired robots monitor the venice lagoon

Dienstag, 26.11.2019

Recently project subCULTron, led by Prof. Schmickl came to a conclusion; thanks to the project, there are certain parts of the Venetian lagoon that are now monitored by robots. In subCULTron, we developed a heterogeneous swarm of aquatic robots - aMussels, aFish and aPads for long term environmental monitoring in the lagoon of Venice. Unlike the classical approach of using a single autonomous vehicle or static sensor networks, we use a swarm of autonomous robots to achieve this. In addition to developing the hardware and the software of individual robots, we developed bio-inspired swarm algorithms which lets us take advantage of the distributed nature of the system to achieve our goals. The collected data enables our local collaborators (biologists, hydrogeologists) to effectively monitor the Venetian lagoon and enable early detection of catastrophic events like Anoxia. The final demonstration of the subCULTron project was conducted at the end of October 2019 in Brussels, Belgium. The reviewers were highly appreciative of the results achieved in the project.
