This paper presents some of the results of the EU-funded project PANDORA - Persistent Autonomy Through Learning Adaptation Observation and Re-planning. The project was three and a half years long and involved several organisations across Europe. The application domain is underwater inspection and intervention, a topic particularly interesting for the oil and gas sector, whose representatives constituted the Industrial Advisory Board. Field trials were performed at The Underwater Centre, in Loch Linnhe, Scotland, and in harbour conditions close to Girona, Spain.
