SMaRC – Swedish Maritime Robotics Centre

SMaRC – Swedish Maritime Robotics Centre – is a national cross-disciplinary industrial research centre for maritime robotics. The main task is to perform research on, and demonstrate, solutions that contribute to the transition to autonomous intelligent underwater systems.

The centre focuses on four research disciplines – autonomy, endurance, perception and communication – to develop next-generation maritime robotics for ocean production, safeguarding society and environmental sensing.

The maritime robots will change the underwater domain the same way that satellites did for space exploration.

The research project is funded by The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research and the participating partners. The project runs from Mars 2017 to December 2024.
