Abstract

Looks at Amadeus (advanced manipulator for deep underwater systems) which is an international subsea manipulator project, funded by the European Community Marine Science and Technology Research Programme. The object is to improve the sampling and manipulation capabilities of underwater systems, through the development of advanced grippers and manipulation control techniques. Says that Phase 1 of the project produced an innovative dextrous gripper system for laboratory use. The objective of phase 2 is to produce more robust systems offering enhanced functionality and suitability for trials in the marine environment. Provides an overview of the Amadeus project describing the achievements of the first phase and the proposed developments for phase 2.
