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.
