Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV)

MARES (Modular Autonomous Robot for Environment Sampling) is an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), which has been developed by INESC TEC and the Ocean Systems Group (OceanSys) of the University of Porto. MARES is a highly modular autonomous underwater vehicle, designed for shallow water operations. The vehicle can be configured to carry a wide variety of oceanographic sensors and includes a set of navigation sensors to ensure that the predefined trajectories are followed.
