Unmanned Maritime Systems Engineering

Our Goal

This Committee focuses on Human Machine Interactions, Cybernetics, and System Engineering as applied to the design, operation and manoeuvering for both autonomous, submersible, and manipulator devices. A unique aspect of the committee’s work will be fostering advanced intelligent situationally aware teams of devices who work cooperatively to achieve some common goals.

The goal of the TC on UMSE is to provide a forum for exchanging ideas among diverse communities of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) researchers at SMC-sponsored conferences and workshops. These events will be hosted jointly with SMC and other IEEE Technical Societies such as the IEEE-Oceanic Engineering Society and Robotics, etc. Expected Outcomes include generating peer review paper publications and add as a new area of activities of SMC Publications.

An additional motivation for the establishment of the IEEE SMC TC on UMSE is to develop Tutorials that focus on Underwater Vehicles and establish a workshop that will lead to a future international conference on UMSE. We believe that an IEEE SMC conference could provide unique interaction opportunities for IEEE SMCS members and the research community.
