MORPH: Marine robotic systems of self-organizing, logically linked physical nodes

Project reference: FP7-ICT-2011-7-288704
Total budget: 6.284.371 €
Duration:01/02/2012 – 31/01/2016
Udg project coordinator: Dr. Pere Ridao

The MORPH project proposes a novel concept of an underwater robotic system that emerges out of integrating, albeit in a non-physical manner, different mobile robot-modules with distinct and complementary resources. It will provide efficient methods to map the underwater environment with great accuracy in situations that defy existing technology: namely underwater surveys over rugged terrain and structures with full 3D complexity, including walls with a negative slope.
