 Project objective

The project aims to develop an eco-innovative product: a zero emission autonomous (unmanned) robot-boat system intended for use as a monitoring station for quality & quantity of surface waters. The proposed innovative product (system) aims to contribute to solving two important issues: -The (unprecedented) need of high quality, real-time information/data on water environment related primarily to the Increasing climate change uncertainty, and to protection of the environment -The need of low-carbon, low-cost, effective vessels operating in inland and coastal water The positioning of the present business innovation project can be estimated as being at “TRL7 – system prototype demonstration in operational environment”. The robot-boat system is intended to be operated as an unmanned apparatus; having onboard computer and a large-range radio-telemetry system for real-time transfer of data for desktop and web-applications; with a large carrying capacity and special shape, to carry onboard various measurement equipment ; incorporating a number of innovative solutions. Main objective of project Phase 1 is the development of a Feasibility study including a business plan. A comprehensive analysis of basic Technological factors, Economics, Marketing and Financial study, Legal requirements, Operational conditions will be carried out. The use of the system as an autonomous monitoring unit can provide low-cost, efficient and routine monitoring of the aquatic environment, this way providing significant impact on EU water sector. Reliable data from such observations are of crucial importance to understanding and adaptation to climate change, as well as to respond to unprecedented burden on water resources, needed not only for safe drinking water, but also to support agriculture, energy, transportation, manufacturing, and civil infrastructure. It can also help coastal and catchment communities to adapt to climate change, and react to flood hazards and environmental threats.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "ZEBCOM" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
