Dive in with us!
We develop underwater robots to tackle tasks in challenging environments, focusing on omnidirectional manoeuvrability, modularity and easy deployability.
While we build a platform at ETH Zürich for students interested in underwater technology and exploration, it is our vision to push sub sea exploration in Switzerland since this intriguing topic has not really been touched in the past, though this country has an abundance of lakes, rivers and hydroelectric industry. Based on our research in underwater position estimation via SLAM and USBL together with an innovative robot design for high current environments, we strive to develop pioneering solutions in underwater robotics.
Last weekend, our newest robot Proteus from Tethys Robotics was allowed to dive into the Lake of Zurich for the very first time and obviously felt the freedom. It is a big step for us! Because this robot is the first completely self-developed robotics system of Tethys Robotics and everything works perfectly. We are very […]
