A new robot for environmental monitoring on the Great Barrier Reef
Dunbabin, Matthew, Roberts, Jonathan, Usher, Kane, & Corke, Peter (2004) A new robot for environmental monitoring on the Great Barrier Reef. In Barnes, Nick & Austin, David (Eds.)

A vast amount of research into autonomous
underwater navigation has, and is, being conducted
around the world. However, typical research
and commercial platforms have limited
autonomy and are generally unable to navigate
efficiently within coral reef environments without
tethers and significant external infrastructure.
This paper outlines the development and
presents experimental results into the performance
evaluation of a new robotic vehicle for
underwater monitoring and surveying in highly
unstructured environments. 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 lowcost
research capability that will progress environmental
monitoring through unaided navigation,
cooperative robotics, sensor network distribution
and data harvesting.
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
