Abstract

3D recording, digital surveying and mapping are efficient and manageable tools for reconnaissance, documentation and monitoring in underwater archaeology. Lab4Dive project, co-funded by the European Union's EMFF Programme, through the EASME and DG MARE call on 'Blue Labs', aims to design, develop and validate an innovative, marketable and competitive technology, which will assist underwater archaeologists in the field and will contribute significantly to the successful outcome of the survey process, documentation and preservation of submerged archaeological sites. In this article, the Lab4Dive system and its preliminary testing results, will be presented. The system is based on an underwater tablet coupled with an intelligent underwater case embedded with environmental sensors, a high-resolution camera and compatible with different commercial acoustic positioning systems, which will be integrated with a cloud data gathering system. During the dive, the tablet provides the diver with an augmented navigation interface, which guides him towards the selected targets. The cloud data gathering system allows the archaeologists to produce a 3D reconstruction of the site, which encompasses all the acquired information, enabling them to further study and analyze the data before the next mission.
