Final Demonstration of the ICARUS project in a Sea Search and Rescue Scenario

On the 9th and 10th of July 2015, the final field trials of the robotic tools developed within the FP7 project ICARUS took place in the Portuguese Naval Base and Academy at Alfeite (Lisbon), Portugal. These sea trials showed how the robotic tools developed by the ICARUS project partners can assist “human” search and rescue teams during a major disaster at sea.

Calzoni U-Ranger took part to the trials together with other unmanned maritime and aerial vehicles equipped with powerful sensors. These unmanned vehicles collaborate as a coordinated team, communicating via ad hoc radio networking.
