LABUST has taken part in many scientific research projects relating to underwater systems and technologies in various roles. This includes numerous international (FP7, H2020, ONRG, INTERREG,...) as well as national projects.
As part of the H2020 project "EXCELLABUST - Excelling LABUST in marine robotics", dr. Edin Omerdić and dr. Gerald Dooly held a tutorial titled "ROVs for Use in Challenging Conditions: I-ROV & ROV ÉTÁIN" on 14th - 15th June 2018 at the University of Limerick. Gerard Dooly provided a brief introduction to the hardware elements of the UL ROV Étáin prior to travelling into the UL Limerick Docks facility. At UL Limerick Docks students had the opportunity to get a hands-on hardware and software elements of the ROV and a brief training on how to operate the ROV and sub-systems (manual pilot control, copilot interfaces, LARS operation & manipulator control). The lectures on the second day included a description of features and physical layout of system components, standard ROV operation procedures and operation modes and results from ROV maiden voyage in May 2018.
