Since its foundation in 2016, IQUA robotics has been a very active company in International initiatives taking place regularly in underwater robotics research world. This spring, the place to be was Provence, in Southern France, two very interesting meeting points of research in underwater robotics community occurred in just 1 month: European Marine Robotics and […]
Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), based in Daejeon (Korea), has chosen SPARUS II AUV to be its research platform. The Intelligent Robotic Autonomy and Perception (IRAP) Lab at KAIST, leaded by Dr. Ayoung Kim, focuses on robotics problems in civil and environmental engineering applications. Their main research interest and topics include perception-based environment […]
The National Oceanography Centre (NOC), the United Kingdom’s centre of excellence for oceanographic sciences, works with SPARUS II as one of their software-testing platforms. One of the main features of IQUA’s platforms is that they have an open conception, both in terms of hardware (reconfigurable) and software (using ROS operating system). These characteristics brought the […]
Girona 500 and Sparus II are autonomous hovering vehicles that can be adapted by the end-user to a wide range of applications. This feature, together with their low weight, low requirements for its operation at sea and the added value of using ROS, convert them in a very interesting base platform for research centres that […]
The vehicles from Iqua Robotics have at its core an open software architecture based on therobot operating system (ROS), named component oriented layer-based architecture for autonomy (COLA2). The use of a ROS-based software architecture is particularly advantageous from a developer perspective and it simplifies the creation and the addition of new components, thus enabling to easily […]
The Martine Autonomy and Technology Showcase (MATS) 2018 took place at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Southampton (UK) from the 13th to the 15th of November 2018. The event is annually organized by the NOC and gathers professionals on marine technologies, both in academia and industry.
We will be present at Oceanology International in London from the 13th to the 16th March. Do not miss the chance to visit us on our booth (A111). If you want to arrange a meeting prior to the event, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
IQUA Robotics started its journey as a University of Girona start up back in October 2016, after 10 years of applied research on marine robotics and applications at CIRS – Underwater Vision and Robotics Lab. On July 2017, the company delivered its first unit of SPARUS II AUV to its final customer, the Department of […]
