Underwater Manipulation

We present our current efforts in multi-agent underwater vehicle manipulator systems endowed with dexterous manipulation end effectors. Such systems, either autonomous or semiautonomous, are appropriate for underwater intervention missions extending from oil / power industry to search & rescue and archaeology operations. Standard operational Remotely Operated Vehicles are used and we endowed them with our home/custom made manipulators and dexterous end effectors. We plan to bring along two of our early (small) such type of setups for demonstration purposes, along with 3 large (A0 size) posters and videos on 2 terminals. Leaflets will be distributed to the public.
