The new Zeno AUV is a new concept AUV, designed by the Italian company MDM TEAM srl, an official spinoff of the University of Florence. The vehicle, characterized by hovering capability, is equipped with 8 thrusters with an high level of isotropy allowing not only to perform survey but also to hover counteracting current from many direction. Zeno AUV can be customized with the main optical and acoustic payload sensors according with the state of the art. Moreover, it is a light, 2 person portable vehicle characterized by high transportability and manoeuvrability.
Thanks to a fast replacement battery package, expressly designed for Zeno AUV, the critical issue of the low mission autonomy typical of the low cost AUVs can be overcome in satisfactory way.
A user-friendly graphical user interfaces and a powerful software for the control of Zeno AUV have been designed to facilitate the access of the archaeologists in particular and of the end users more in general to the developed technologies.
