Fraunhofer IGD brings visual computing to the field of marine technology. It is used for object recognition, surveying, 3D reconstruction and navigation. Automated image analysis uses the latest deep learning methods.
Fraunhofer IGP prepares various technologies such as gluing, screwing, welding, cleaning and coating for use under water. In addition, IGP supplies systems for measuring and monitoring structures under water.
Fraunhofer IKTS offers robust sensor systems and test methods for permanent monitoring of underwater structures. Furthermore, novel analytical methods are established to characterize the complex aging processes of microplastics.
Fraunhofer IOSB together with its Advanced Systems Technologies branch IOSB-AST work on the topics of underwater manipulation and microplastics in the sea on the basis of their long-time experience in the field of underwater image processing and control of underwater vehicles..
