We develop new platform systems for underwater observation based on the latest robotics and data science.

Autonomous, unmanned platforms have a large potential to obtain data about the vast ocean. We seek to realize novel underwater platform systems to reveal the nature of the ocean. These systems will realize wide-area, high-accuracy, and long-term observation through collaboration of multiple platforms such as autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs), and seafloor stations. Some of the ongoing projects are as follows; collaborative navigation and formation control of multiple AUVs, long-term deployment of AUVs based on seafloor stations, low-cost AUVs, autonomous detection and tracking of marine life, and under-ice observation.
