The Year of CoCoRo Video #11/52: Out of the lab in Livorno

March 15, 2015

TYOC 11 52  Livorno Out Of Lab   YouTubeThe EU-funded Collective Cognitive Robotics (CoCoRo) project has built a swarm of 41 autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) that show collective cognition. Throughout 2015 – The Year of CoCoRo – we will be uploading a new weekly video detailing the latest stage in its development.This video summarizes all out-of-the-lab activities in which we tested our robots (Lily and Jeff).

There will be more detailed videos following throughout this year showing some of those activities more specifically. The activities shown here show autonomous robots in larger outdoor pools, ponds, lakes, rivers and ocean harbours. They act there either alone (e.g. as autonomous underwater camera agents) or in smaller groups (swarms).

To learn more about the project, see this introductory post, or check out all the videos from the Year of CoCoRo on Robohub.
