Marine robotic system of self-organizing, logically linked physical nodes (MORPH)
Start date: Feb 1, 2012, End date: Jan 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Description The MORPH project advances the novel concept of an underwater robotic system composed of a number of spatially separated mobile robot-modules, carrying distinct and yet complementary resources. Instead of being physically coupled, the modules are connected via virtual links that rely on the flow of information among them. Without rigid links, the MORPH supra-vehicle (MSV) can reconfigure itself and adapt in response to the shape of the terrain. The possible applications of the MSV cover a wide range of scientific and commercial areas such as monitoring of cold water coral reefs, oil and gas pipeline inspection, or harbor and dam protection.
