Development of Innovative Technologies for Autonomous Marine Systems

This interdisciplinary project aims to develop autonomous underwater and surface vehicles. One subproject focusses on the development of calibration procedures and algorithms for the special challenges of underwater photogrammetry. Another subproject realizes a distributed data management system for autonomous maritime systems, enabling the administration of three dimensional data.


The EITAMS project consists of five subprojects. Two of the projects are operated by the IAPG:
