Naval robotics can replace tasks that have always been carried out by traditional methods, which have a high ecological impact and expensive operating costs.
USVs are becoming widespread in several areas in the naval sector. In this real case study, Seabots presents a need that is shared by many ports: mooring inspection in harbors and marinas.
During the operation, GPASEABOTS deployed two USVs equipped with different instrumentation each with the objective of providing a complete service for the needs of a port as large as Barcelona.
One of the USVs was equipped with Wassp S3 MBES, to make multibeam bathymetry of the harbor bottom and identify lost anchorages on the seafloor.
The second USV was equipped with a WIMO Multiparametrical probe and water sampler. Seabots deployed the drone and collected water samples at points that were considered important because of the data seen live from the ground station.
