MINOAS a Marine INspection rObotic Assistant: system requirements and design

Massimo Caccia

This paper is part of an invited session overviewing the EC funded projects concerning cooperative robotic systems in the marine-maritime field.
A presentation of the project Marine INspection rObotic Assistant System (MINOAS) is given. It proposes the re-engineering of the overall vessel inspection methodology, by introducing an innovative system concept that integrates human personnel with high locomotion enabled robots, such tele-porting the human inspector from the vessel's hold to a control room with virtual reality properties. Project motivations, requirements and basic architecture are discussed as well as locomotion techniques which will be evaluated, also through prototyping of ad-hoc mobile robots.
