2nd Summer School
Cooperative Cognitive Control for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (Co3-AUVs)

Bremen, 11.-17. July 2011


The second summer school on Cooperative Cognitive Control for Autonomous 
Underwater Vehicles (Co3-AUVs) is held from 11.07.2011 until 17.07.2011 
at Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany. The summer school is organized 
within the Co3-AUVs EU project (www.Co3-AUVs.eu) funded from FP7 
Challenge 2 - Cognitive Systems, Interaction, Robotics.

The Co3-AUVs summer school has a strong hands-on character. Participants 
receive the opportunity to work with state of the art marine robotics 
equipment and to engage in practical experiments. In addition, they are 
introduced to an Open Source marine robotics simulator featuring among 
others 3D visualization and physics, which allows them to continue 
possible work started in the summer school. Students on all levels (PhD 
/graduate/undergrad) from outside the Co3-AUVs project are particularly 
welcome to participate in the summer school.

The equipment used in the summer school for hands-on experiences 
includes complete AUV as well as core components like different types of 
thrusters, sonars, cameras, attitude and acceleration sensors, 
underwater modems and ranging. In addition to an introduction to the 
different components, the summer school concentrates in its sessions on 
multi-robot aspects of higher level control including cooperative 2D and 
3D SLAM, navigation, and control.
