A Vision for saving the reef — the Starbug AUV

Dunbabin, Matthew, Roberts, Jonathan M., Usher, K., & Corke, Peter (2006) A Vision for saving the reef — the Starbug AUV. In Proceedings of the 2006 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, ICRA 2006, Orlando, Florida, USA.


Starbug is an inexpensive, miniature autonomous underwater vehicle ideal for data collection and ecosystem surveys. Starbug is small enough to be launched by one person without the need for specialised equipment, such as cranes, and it operates with minimal to no human intervention. Starbug was one of the first autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) in the world where vision is the primary means of navigation and control. More details of Starbug can be found here: http://www.csiro.au/science/starbug.html

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are 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.
