The ( in collaboration with ( and ( is happy to invite you to the lecture titled
"From Subsea to Space: Integrated Research in Maritime and Space Robotics"
held by dr. sc. Ivan Stenius, associate professor at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden. The lecture is organised as part of the ( and will take place on Friday, November 10th, 2023 at 12:00 at the Laboratory for Underwater Systems and Technologies, FER (Miramarska 20). The lecture is in person in English with an expected duration 45 minutes.
A summary of the lecture can be found below.
The vastness of our oceans underscores an urgent need for exploration and the acquisition of pivotal data sets essential to our comprehensive understanding of the planet. This presentation delves into the interdisciplinary realm of maritime robotics and hydrobatics, while concurrently also extending its purview to the cosmos through partnerships in space robotics. We will talk about advancements in the science of nonlinear hydrodynamics and its instrumental role in new hydrobatics manoeuvres that stands out as a distinct discipline, emphasising intricate aquatic manoeuvres executed by underwater robots. These manoeuvres herald innovations in areas as diverse as deep-sea exploration and meticulous marine maintenance. By recognising and harnessing the synergies between the weightlessness experienced underwater and in space, we strive to augment the capabilities and flexibility of space robots, amplifying their scope for extraterrestrial endeavours. Complementarily, a significant facet of my research delves into pioneering concepts for electric hydrofoiling boats and Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs), which I will also talk briefly about.
