Ship-based Robotics – An Enabling Technology for Manned and Autonomous Vessels

26th September 2019

Submarine Technology Limited (STL) is a research consultancy, design, development and one-off-project implementation group, specialising in the sub-sea and offshore industries.  For several years, the organisation has been developing ship-based robotic technology, recently with support from the European Regional Development Fund through the Marine-i programme.  Personnel from STL and the University of Plymouth will present results from this exciting R&D programme together with naval architecture studies and market research findings.  The application of robotics to marine operations and its role as an enabling technology for autonomous surface vessels will be explored.
