    Keywords : Probability based path planning; Unmanned ground vehicles; UGV; Autonomous surveillance; Cell decomposition; Spatial partitioning; Target distribution modeling; Decay function; Last-seen function; Stochastic processes; Markov chain; Markov process; Markov planner;

    Abstract : The interest in autonomous surveillance has increased due to advances in autonomous systems and sensor theory. This thesis is a preliminary study of the cooperation between UGVs and stationary sensors when monitoring a dedicated area. The primary focus is the path planning of a UGV for different initial intrusion alarms. Cell decomposition, i. READ MORE

  4. 4. Surveillance, Survival, and Incentives to Stay: Three Approaches to Governing ‘Irregular’ Migration from the Gambia

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för kulturgeografi och ekonomisk geografi; Lunds universitet/LUMID International Master programme in applied International Development and Management

  5. 5. A Study Of Using Communication Signals As Sonar Pulses In Underwater Sensor Systems

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Signaler och system

    Author : Erica Svensson; [2022]
    Keywords : Sonar; Communication signal; Beamforming; Underwater sensor system; WLS estimator; Detection algorithm; Position estimation;

    Abstract : Underwater communication within underwater sensor network is crucial for surveillance of coast and ocean areas. The aim of this report was to examine whether it is realistic to use the communication signal which is sent from one node to another as a sonar pulse, and in such case at what distances. READ MORE
