Sparus II

Mecanitzats PRIVAT has machined and delivered the parts for assembling the underwater robot SPARUS II.

This project undertaken by the CIRS research centre of the Universitat de Girona has recently won the EURATHLON 2014, a European competition of underwater robotics held in La Spezia (Italy) from 29th September to 3rd October. Eurathlon is a new outdoor robotics competition which invites teams to test the intelligence and autonomy of their robots in realistic mock emergency-response scenarios. Inspired by the 2011 Fukushima accident, the competition requires a team of land, underwater and flying robots to work together to survey the scene, collect environmental data and identify critical hazards.
