NETMAR kickoff meeting
06.06.2012, Porto, Portugal
The project NETMAR held its kickoff meeting in Porto, on 6 June 2012.
NETMAR was approved under the 3rd Call for proposals within the priority 2.1 - Improve Maritime Safety.
The project concerns the demonstration, evaluation and dissemination of new robotic systems, sensors and networking technologies in maritime incidents endangering human life, the environment and economic activities. Air and sea going robotic vehicles provide new capabilities to operate in dull, dirty and dangerous environments.
These tools contribute to environmental assessments with unprecedented resolution and sensing diversity, provide reality checks for events generated in social networks and motivate constructive forms of public participation.
