subCULTron aims for achieving long-term autonomy in a learning, self-regulating, self-sustaining underwater society/culture of robots in a high-impact application area: Venice, Italy.

One of the envisioned goals of the subCULTron project is to develop an underwater multi-robot system for intelligent long-term monitoring of underwater ecosystems. The underwater system is comprised of 3 different types of robots. Artificial mussels (aMussels) are sensor hubs attached to the sea-ground, which monitor the natural habitat, including biological agents like algae, bacterial incrustation, and fish. They serve as the collective long-term memory of the system, allowing information to persist beyond the runtime of other agents, enabling the system to continue developing from previously learned states. On the water surface, artificial lily pads (aPads) interface with the human society, delivering energy and information influx from ship traffic or satellite data. Between those two layers, artificial fish (aFish) move, monitor and explore the environment and exchange information with aMussels and aPads.
