DeeperSense Partners Meeting in Girona

The DeeperSense team recently got together for the project’s biannual partners meeting, this time held in Girona.

This very productive meeting focused on advances in perception for underwater robotics, using state-of-the-art deep learning methods specially developed for sonars and conventional cameras. The meeting brought together members of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the University of Haifa (Israel) and the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW), as well as the UdG. The event included several presentations and technical discussions as well as for planning the activities for the last year of the project. This includes the joint effort for setting up a compelling demonstration of technology applied in a real field test setting.

During the meeting, the participants had the opportunity to visit Girona Underwater Vision and Robotics (CIRS), a leading centre for the design and construction of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). The visit showcased several innovative technologies being developed by ViCOROB/UdG including a demonstration in underwater autonomous intervention.
