Software and Control Development for the Small Hovering Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

PI: Franz Hover, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Michael Triantafyllou, MIT Sea Grant

Project Number:2005-R/RCM-14

Start Date:2005-03-01End Date:2007-02-28

Proposal Summary

This small AUV provides broad new mission capability to the underwater community, including inspection, low-speed survey, and intervention tasks. In this project, the investigators are developing an open software code and formulating, implementing, and field-testing algorithms to support essential vehicle positioning with relative and multiple-scale navigation data.
