SeaLion: Our autonomous research platform

At the Fraunhofer CML, autonomous research vessels are being built and deployed for the exploration of underwater landscapes. Camera systems and various sensors create images of riverbeds and seabeds, ship hulls or quay walls through the modular design of the carrier system in conjunction with an underwater robot. Work tasks are transmitted to the ships by radio and the recorded data is transmitted ashore.
