Project Summary

MATRAC-ACP helps to increase the protection of marine waters in ports by improving the quality of monitoring through highly automated robotic systems and methodologies of adaptive sampling.
Ports will be able to guarantee the most effective, repetitive and accurate water monitoring, using homogeneous procedures, through scalable technological solutions in terms of cooperation between robotic systems, automated systems and human operators.
The activity will be validated in collaboration with the port authorities of Genoa and Toulon.
The Consortium includes: CNR-ISSIA (Coordinator), CNR-IMATI, University of Genoa (DISTAV) and IFREMER.
In the project, IMATI is mainly concerned with the 3D modeling of the environment (water and seafloor) and collaborates with DISTAV for the design and implementation of the adaptive sampling on the 3D domain.
