Autonomous robotic systems are becoming increasingly important in many industries. Many different industries include work and tasks that could be done faster and more safely without any human interaction. These tasks vary from underwater mining and maritime to borderline guarding. This research opening is creating the basic methodology for an autonomous offshore robotic system and open demonstration in a working environment. The autonomous robotic system includes collaborative features between aerial subsystems (Unmanned Aerial System/Drone) and waterborne subsystems (Autonomous Surface Vessel and Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) to carry out inspections or other actions without a need for any kind of human interaction. These research results of the new cooperation principles will provide possibility to find new business opportunities in the autonomous maritime ecosystem.
