Fields of competence
ROBOTNOR represents a unique synergy of academic and industrial expertise which allows us to counsel and comprehend a wide variety of tasks and projects. Our fields of competence are numerous and diverse.
PhD researcher Frederik Stendahl Leira at the Department of Engineering Cybernetics/AMOS, NTNU participated in the 2013 Rapid Environment Picture (REP) exercise in Portugal.
The field experiments took place at the Portuguese coast and involved numerous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and surface vessels operating in a coordinated robotic network. NTNU/AMOS tested UAV-borne thermal imaging with onboard machine vision capabilities in collaboration with the University of Porto and Monterey Bay Aquarium (MBARI) in scenarios such as search-and-rescue and oceanographic missions.
