In the domain of search and rescue robotics, most of the attention goes out towards contributions made by aerial robots (drones) and ground robots. However, also if we consider the potential for high-impact progress in the near future, then maritime search & rescue robots certainly also have valuable capabilities to bring to the table. Swarms of autonomous seafaring robots would for example be ideal tools for speeding up maritime victim search & rescue operations. Underwater robots, on the other hand, would be perfect tools for damage assessment and supporting cleanup operations after coastal incidents. However, before the widespread operational use of maritime search and rescue robots can become a reality, scientific progress is still required in a number of domains:
This Special Session aims to gather professionals from Academia, Industry and the End-user community to discuss recent progress in the above-mentioned non-limitative list of topics, revolving around the topic of Maritime Search & Rescue.
