TAO Workshop

The TAO workshop is concerned with computer-assisted remote underwater handling. Its purposes are:

  • Assess the feasibility or functioning of remotely operated systems and processes
  • Develop operating procedures
  • Train operators using its Maestro 7-function manipulator arm, which is identical to the manipulator on the Victor 6000 submersible
  • Test sensors, robotics-related systems and tools
  • Develop the associated control algorithms and actuators
