The objective of the Underwater Mobile Manipulation task is to develop and demonstrate key elements of an underwater robotics system that can provide unprecedented levels of perception and manipulation to meet the challenges of the offshore energy sector. This objective would be met by applying JPL expertise in sensor fusion, stereo vision, high degree of freedom manipulators and intent-based autonomy to the underwater environment. Demonstrations over the course of this multi-year effort will focus on robotic manipulation tasks performed on subsea oil & gas production infrastructure by ROVs.
