  1. 1. Optimal Control Model for an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Gustav Holm; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The main goal with this thesis was to develop an optimal control model for anautonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) and evaluate whether reference trackingusing Model Predictive Control (MPC) based on a linear dynamics modeldescribing all six degrees of freedom (DOF) is a suitable method for waypointnavigation. MPC is an advanced receding horizon optimal control method capableof including constraints in the optimization. READ MORE

  3. 3. Machine Learning for Inferring Depth from Side-scan Sonar Images

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Yiping Xie; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Underwater navigation using Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), which is significant for marine science research, highly depends on the acoustic method, sonar. Typically, AUVsare equipped with side-scan sonars and multibeam sonars at the same time since they both have their advantages and limitations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Conceptual Design Study of a Foil-Trailer to AUV 62-AT

    University essay from KTH/Lättkonstruktioner

    Author : Jacob Zeidler; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The Swedish Navy has been using the AUV62-AT for submarine hunting training successfully for a while and it has been found that the biggest drawback is the transport which is very resource draining. The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration was given the task to solve this and a hydrofoiling-trailer was seen as a potential solution. READ MORE

  5. 5. Optical communication with underwater snake robots : Design and implementation of an underwater wireless optical communication system

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Institutionen för elektronikkonstruktion

    Author : Jaime Marco Rider; [2019]
    Keywords : optical communications; underwater wireless; robot communications;

    Abstract : Eelume AS is a norwegian company that develops autonomous underwater vehicles. Their flagship model is an underwater snake robot that performs inspection, maintenance and repair operations. For the time being, Eelume has been using acoustic communications between their AUV's and the docking station, but it has a big drawback: bandwidth. READ MORE
