About Project MAUS


There are many underwater tasks that currently require extensive effort. These include environmental parameter analysis in the field of research and public facilities, as well as the inspection, monitoring and surveying of harbor areas and maritime shipping lanes. This motivates the development of a system that significantly simplifies the accomplishment of these tasks and can be used to support professional divers in their day-to-day work. 



In this In this joint project between universities and industry, two cooperating AUVs made in "Schleswig-Holstein" are being developed for different tasks and built as prototypes. The AUVs are able to communicate with each other and act in a coordinated manner in the group. They can be deployed on small ships and boats up to a depth of 200 meters without complex logistics. The modular approach makes it possible to respond effectively to different users and their requirements. Innovative concepts of this system include hybrid communication consisting of acoustic, optical and inductive data transmission and swarm localization.
