The CNR-ISSIA (Institute of Intelligent Systems for Automation of the 
National Research Council of Italy) - Genoa division is a European 
leading institution in the field of marine robotics with almost twenty 
years of experience in the development and exploitation of unmanned 
marine vehicle, i.e. ROVs such as Roby and Romeo, and USVs such as 
Charlie, ALANIS and SWAP II.
The marine robotics research group, that is currently partner of 3 
ongoing EC FP7 projects, has also a consolidated track in transfer of 
technology to industrial partners, and in particular SMEs (Small and 
Medium-sized Enterprises) operating in the field of industrial 
automation and robotics. The researchers of the group are authors of

Systems for Automation, Genoa-UOS of CNR, in the framework of the EC FP7 
research program “CART – Cooperative Autonomous Robotic Towing system 
FP7-SME-2011 Grant Agreement Number 285878” and other projects of the 
research group “SP3-003 Autonomous robotic systems and control”.
The main topic of the project will be: “Cooperating robotic systems in 
the marine-maritime field”, under the scientific responsibility of Dr. 
Massimo Caccia.
The research grant will last for 12 (twelve) months and the expected
