RAUVI: Reconfigurable AUV for Intervention missions

The main goal of the RAUVI project is to develop and improve the necessary technologies for autonomously performing an intervention mission in underwater environments.

RAUVI project aims to design and develop an Underwater Autonomous Robot, able to perceive the environment by means of acoustic and optic sensors, and equipped with a robotic arm in order to autonomously perform simple intervention tasks.

Due to the complexity and multidisciplinary nature of the proposed goals, this project has been structured into three subprojects, including the I-AUV development, the robotic arm development, and the implementation of computer-based vision systems for vehicle and arm control.
