Some of the co-chairs of the TC organized a Special Issue on Marine Robotics which appeared in the last issue of March 2010.

ICRA 2009 Workshop on Recent Developments in Marine Robotics

The TC organized a Workshop on Recent Developments in Marine Robotics at ICRA 2009 in Kobe, Japan. Approximately 30 people participated.

Marine Robotics

Scope:

Recently, Marine Robotics has grown from nascent navigation and control algorithms for underwater and surface vehicles, to powered autonomous underwater vehicles routinely able to dive beyond 6000 meters. We have seen underwater gliders cross the Atlantic Ocean and unmanned surface platforms (Wave Gliders) cross the Pacific.
Marine Robotics as a field is set up to make a major contribution to understanding large scale societal problems. Emerging marine robotic developments will afford scientists advanced tools to explore and exploit the oceans at an unprecedented scale, in a sustainable manner. The Marine Robotics Technical Committee fosters research in these areas and seeks to bring this research to the forefront of the broader robotics community.
