Welcome to Triton's project website

TRITON is a marine robotics research project focused on the development of technologies really close to the real needs of the final user and, as such, it can facilitate the potential technological transfer of its results.

The scenarios chosen for the development and experimental validation of the project are: (1) “Search and Recovery” and (2) “Permanent Observatories”. Under (1) we will address the recovery of a typical airplane black box and under (2) we will carry out maintenance operations characteristic of permanent marine stations.

The project would not be viable without the technological developments reached by the ongoing national coordinated project under the DPI program entitled RAUVI, whose consortium is formed by the members that sign in the present proposal. Thanks to RAUVI, we count on a prototype of I-AUV from which, in only three years' time, we can carry out substantial improvements at the functional and operative levels with an amount of research investment that we can realistically assume.
