Cognitive Systems and Robotics
The CoCoRo project aims at developing a swarm of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) that are able to interact with each other and which can balance tasks such as ecological monitoring, searching, maintaining, exploring and harvesting resources in underwater habitats. The swarm will maintain swarm integrity under conditions of dynamically changing environments. This will be achieved by letting the AUVs interact with each other and exchange information, resulting in a cognitive system that is aware of its environment, of local individual goals and threats and of global swarm-level goals and threats. This can be exploited for improving the robustness, flexibility and efficiency of other technical applications in the field of ICT.
