Sobre el proyecto

The project ROMULO "Robots and Modelling Underwater LItter Observation"", co-financed by the Biodiversity Foundation and Ecoembes, It contemplates for the first time the combination of emerging technologies such as underwater with hydrodynamic models and high resolution vision systems Robotics, to detect and map marine wastes. The Lagrangian model (based in ROMS, Regional Ocean Model System) you try to determine possible areas of accumulation of marine debris. The autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) with the ability to map the seafloor, especially in these areas of accumulation, It records video with positioning data files, among others. At last, an application identifies, classify and locate the trash recorded by cameras in the AUV, with final result of garbage georeferenced maps.
