The Institute of Computer Engineering at the University of Lübeck conducts research in the area of autonomous mobile robots, in particular AUVs (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles). A main focus is on swarms of inexpensive, small underwater robots which communicate and cooperate via acoustic modems. Depending on the mission, various sensors (e.g. CTD probes, sonars, cameras) can be integrated. Typical applications are underwater inspection and monitoring e.g. in harbours or on coasts.
