A hybrid AUV design for shallow water reef navigation
Dunbabin, Matthew, Roberts, Jonathan , Usher, Kane, Winstanley, Graeme , & Corke, Peter (2005) A hybrid AUV design for shallow water reef navigation. In Proceedings of the 2005 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, 2005 ICRA 2005, IEEE, Palau de Congressos de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain, pp. 2105-2110.
The highly unstructured nature of coral reef environments makes them difficult for current robotic vehicles to efficiently navigate. Typical research and commercial platforms have limited autonomy within these environments and generally require tethers and significant external infrastructure. This paper outlines the development of a new robotic vehicle for underwater monitoring and surveying in highly unstructured environments and presents experimental results illustrating the vehicle’s performance. The hybrid AUV design developed by the CSIRO robotic reef monitoring team realises a compromise between endurance, manoeuvrability and functionality. The vehicle represents a new era in AUV design specifically focused at providing a truly low-cost research capability that will progress environmental monitoring through unaided navigation, cooperative robotics, sensor network distribution and data harvesting.
