Autonomous Exploration of Ballast Water Tank with Navigation through Manholes

As the researchers explain:

the robot performs simultaneous localization and mapping, represents the world using voxels thus allowing it to conduct volumetric calculations, plans exploratory paths within each compartment, and detects and localizes the manholes within them.

During this mission, this drone explored 6 ballast compartments before returning to its take-off location.
