Autonomous Marine Multi-Agent Systems

  • Submission closed.

About this Research Topic

Marine Robotics have been receiving an increasing interest from research and industry in the last few years. Currently, marine robotics systems are used for various applications, including for the oil and gas industry, port security, offshore aquaculture industry, underwater pipelines and cables, marine structures, etc.

Autonomous marine robots, have inherent limitations like limited power, sensing, communication and computing resources, which increases the complexity of their missions. Motion task plans for such systems must take into consideration all those constraints and leverage capabilities of multi-agent and usually heterogeneous teams of marine systems.

The purpose of this Research Topic is to present advances in the area of marine multi-agent systems and provide solutions in real-world applications from both theoretical and experimental aspects. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, motion and task planning for (heterogeneous) marine systems, underwater localization, exploration, mapping and monitoring, sensor fusion, navigation and guidance, human–robot interaction, safety and risk management and real-world applications of marine multi-agent systems.

This Topic was initiated with the support of Mr. Christos Constantinou of Cyprus University of Technology.


Keywords: Underwater robots, Underwater multi-agent systems, underwater localization, exploration, navigation and guidance, mapping and monitoring


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
