ROBORDER aims at developing and demonstrating a fully-functional autonomous border surveillance system with unmanned mobile robots including aerial, water surface, underwater and ground vehicles which will incorporate multimodal sensors as part of an interoperable network. Our intention is to implement a heterogenous robot system and enhance it with detection capabilities for early identification of criminal activities at border and coastal areas along with marine pollution events.


The overall framework for the ROBORDER project lies in the domain of border surveillance, marine pollution detection and situational awareness. The main objective is to detect and recognize illegal border activities, assess conditions and properly indicate and inform the border authorities and operational personnel about the area status.
ROBORDER will collect heterogeneous data from several different resources such as thermal and optical cameras, passive radars and RF sensors originated from multiple vehicles/robots. The data will be semantically integrated in order to provide accurate decision support services to the corresponding authorities for border patrolling.
