ANERIS

Development of an Intelligent Oceanographic Probe with Autonomous Sampling Capabilities
Sep 2008 - Jul 2011
Project description

The ANERIS probe will consist of four modules, developed by four CSIC Institutes:1) Sensor Systems : ANERIS -S, Sensors (Unitat de Tecnologia Marina, UTM)2) Recollection System : ANERIS- B, Biology (Institut de Ciències del Mar, ICM)3)Vertical Navigation System : ANERIS- C, Control (Instituto de Automática Industrial, IAI)4) Intelligent Decision System : ANERIS- L, Learning (Institut d'Investigació en Intel·ligència Artificial, IIIA) Sub-Project ANERIS-LThe objective of the subproject ANERIS-L is using the autonomous probe sensors data as input for an intelligent module  that will determine the best N depth levels at which samples will be obtained for each submersion.Machine Learning techniques will be applied to data produced by probe simulations with the goal of acquiring a model for intelligent depth selection (IDS). This model has as input the optical sensor data and outputs the best N depth levels for obtaining samples.
