Project Title: EUMarine Robots (EUMR)

Funding body: EU H2020 Infrastructure

Duration: 36 M extended (01/03/2018-30/11/2021)

Coordinator: University of Port, Portugal

Partners: here

UL Team: Gerard Dooly PI, Daniel Toal, Edin Omerdic, Anthony Weir, Petar Trslic 



EUMarineRobots (EUMR) proposes an access-infrastructure for the deployment of a full-range of aerial, surface and sub-surface marine robotic assets, the combined value of which is far greater than the sum of their parts. EUMR will open transnational access to significant national marine robotics R&D assets across Europe. 

The main objective of the EUMR project is to open up key national and regional marine robotics research infrastructures (RIs) to all European researchers, from both academia and industry, ensuring their optimal use and joint development to establish a world-­class marine robotics integrated infrastructure. The EUMR consortium comprises 15 partners from 10 countries who, collectively, can deploy a comprehensive portfolio of marine robotic assets with required associated support assets and expertise. The network is a strong and balanced grouping of globally distinguished key players with diverse, track-record of excellence across marine / robotic sectors. Partners are members of a wide variety of existing networks, and research infrastructure collaborations both formal and informal across Europe and the world. EUMR is a first stage in aggregating these networks and assets as world-leading for support and growth of a strong community of practice in marine robotics and marine.




UL work in EUMR spans all WPs and has a key role in WP3 (Development of eInfrastructure),WP5 (TNA experiments and use cases), WP6 (Innovation to advance marine robotics and WP7 (Multi platform operations and persistence). 

UL is a primary provider of ROV infrastructure to the consortium and also of control systems and telepresence software with particular focus on operations in challenging offshore scenarios including strong waves and currents in Marine Renewable Energy. Furthermore UL will contribute to TNA activities by providing access to precision flight control Inspection and Intervention ROV systems for close quarter operations in hazardous environments e.g. close to wrecks or heaving ocean energy converters. 
ULs involvement in JRA focuses on advancement of infrastructure through development of precision flight control systems integrated with INS and realtime imaging of environment and targets for vehicle registration relative to target..
