by IT on 04-05-2016
In this year´s edition of the Exame Informática awards, that distinguish people, companies and products who have excelled in the field of sciences and new technologies, the IT - ISCTE-IUL project Ocean Swarm received an honourable mention, for the category of Innovation.

In a radically new approach to maritime tasks, the Ocean Swarm provides systems composed of large numbers of inexpensive and autonomous surface robots as an alternative to costly manned vessels and current unmanned vehicles.

After having received the Best Robot Video award for their film “A Sea of Robots” in the prestigious Conference of Artificial Intelligence – AAAI 2016, this Exame Informática award distinction goes to prove that these IT robots are really riding towards the crest of the wave.
