Smart Oceans

Smart Oceans is an umbrella term for interconnected submersible or water-based sensors and actuators that are used in research and exploration. Ireland, understandably, stands to benefit greatly from effective harnessing of its marine potential. SmartBay Ireland has recently been established and ‘is responsible for the establishment and development of a National Research, Test and Demonstration facility to support the application and translation of research and provide platforms for the testing and demonstration of new technologies and solutions in the Marine and related sectors’.
