Abstract

We present details and results obtained with an underwater system comprising two different autonomous underwater robots (AUV) and ten static underwater nodes (USN) networked together optically and acoustically. The AUVs can locate and hover above the static nodes for data upload, and they can perform network maintenance functions such as deployment, relocation, and recovery. The AUVs can also locate each other, dock, and move using coordinated control that takes advantage of each AUV’s strength.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
