Interdisciplinary Maritime Robotics Workshop Continues in Croatia
Breaking the Surface (BTS) is an international interdisciplinary field workshop of maritime robotics and applications held in Biograd na moru, Croatia Oct. 1-8 and supported by the Embassy of the United States Zagreb–Croatia and the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Zagreb.
The annual BtS summer workshop encourages interaction and the exchange of knowledge and experience about the maritime robotics field and its applications. The seven-day event provides first-hand knowledge about the latest in scientific research and technological achievements as well as hands-on experience in working with complex modern underwater systems.
Held each year since 2009, BTS brings together international experts, university professors, scientists, industry representatives and students from maritime robotics, marine biology, marine archaeology and maritime security. There is also a special track for marine innovation with a day-long workshop that will teach attendees how to commercialize robotics-related technologies.
The event also offers hands-on tutorial sessions concentrating on the use of tools and applications for robotic ocean science mission preparation, post-processing and statistical analysis.
