- The LAB4Dive project aims to design, develop and validate an innovative, marketable and competitive product, a so called "Portable Smart Lab", usable by underwater archaeologists as a support for surveying, documenting and preserving Underwater Cultural Heritage. The system will be developed with the active cooperation of business experts, young researchers tutors, end users and local stakeholders coming from different scientific disciplines and industries. These actors will be memebers of the virtual "Blue Lab" of the project, aiming at offering a multidisciplinary capacity towards the challenges faced by the project. The "Portable Smart Lab" will be based on a tablet suitable for Underwater operation conditions, coupled with a docking station equipped with environmental sensors, a high resolution camera and an acoustic localization system.
