Ship-based Robotics – An Enabling Technology for Manned and Autonomous Vessels

On 26th September 2019, Submarine Technology Limited (STL) and the Southwest Chapter of The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) will be hosting a free event exploring the application of robotics in marine operations and their role as an enabling technology for manned and autonomous vessels.

SUT is a multi-disciplinary learned society bringing together organisations and individuals with an interest in underwater technology, ocean science, and offshore engineering.

STL is a research consultancy, design, and development group, specialising in the sub-sea and offshore industries.  Recently, STL’s development of ship-based robotic technology has been supported by the European Regional Development Fund through the Marine-I programme in Cornwall.

Personnel from STL and the University of Plymouth will present results from the R&D programme together with naval architecture studies and market research findings. The application of robotics to marine operations and its role as an enabling technology for autonomous surface vessels will be explored.

The event will take place at Tremough Innovation Centre, Tremough Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9TA
