Research Projects


The project focus is on producing an approach to the safety assurance of cyber-physical systems-of-systems, whose safe cooperation is dependent on wireless communication.

Kristiansund Autonomous Ferry Project

Kristiansund will convert the “Sundbåten” 143 year old ferry to be autonomous and battery-powered. Maritime Robotics is leading a consortium with eight partners.

GLIDER Project

The objective of the GLIDER project is to demonstrate a cost-effective observation program for real-time and long-term environmental monitoring over a large spatial scale.


Unmanned vehicles are creating opportunities to operate fish farms in areas with harsher weather conditions without putting people at risk. Maritime Robotics is part of the Sintef-led project, Artifex.
