BtS (Breaking the Surface) is a summer workshop that encourages interaction and the exchange of knowledge and experience about the maritime robotics field and its applications. In 7 days, participants get first-hand knowledge about the latest in scientific research and results, technological achievements as well as hands-on experience in working with complex and modern underwater systems.


In the event, Nuno Gracias and Ricard Campos gave a tutorial on “Omnidirectional vision for underwater robots”. Marc Carreras gave a talk on “Towards persistent AUVs for seabed inspection”. Khadidja Himri, Patryk Cieslak and Joseta Roca also attended to the workshop.


Along the 7 days, the team had the chance to interact with other international labs and companies.
