Low-Cost vision-based AUV guidance system for reef navigation
Dunbabin, Matthew, Corke, Peter, & Buskey, Gregg (2004) Low-Cost vision-based AUV guidance system for reef navigation. In Proceedings 2004 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation ICRA '04, IEEE, Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, pp. 7-12.
Ensuring the long term viability of reef environments requires essential monitoring of many aspects of these ecosystems. However, the sheer size of these unstructured environments (for example Australia’s Great Barrier Reef pose a number of challenges for current monitoring platforms which are typically remote operated and required significant resources and infrastructure. Therefore, a primary objective of the CSIRO robotic reef monitoring project is to develop and deploy a large number of AUV teams to perform broadscale reef surveying. In order to achieve this, the platforms must be cheap, even possibly disposable. This paper presents the results of a preliminary investigation into the performance of a low-cost sensor suite and associated processing techniques for vision and inertial-based navigation within a highly unstructured reef environment.
