  • Advancing Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Technology

    Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) are a mainstay of the subsea survey industry. With unparalleled speed and accuracy in deep water, they have long been the obvious choice for surveys in inhospitable, deep environments. In light of the current downturn in the oil and gas market and the increasing visibility of autonomous vehicles, such as self-driving cars, AUV technology is poised to break ...

  • Ocean outfall plume characterization using an autonomous underwater vehicle

    A monitoring mission to map and characterize the Point Loma Ocean Outfall (PLOO) wastewater plume using an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) was performed on 3 March 2011. The mobility of an AUV provides a significant advantage in surveying discharge plumes over traditional cast-based methods, and when combined with optical and oceanographic sensors, provides a capability for both detecting ...

  • Key Technology of Unmanned Underwater Vehicle

    1. Overall Technology Underwater UAV is a highly technology-intensive and systematic project, involving dozens of professional disciplines. Each discipline restricts each other. Purely pursuing a single technical index, one will lose sight of the other. To solve these contradictions, we need to strengthen coordination in addition to a strong system concept. On the premise of meeting the overall ...

  • Brief Introduction of Underwater Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

     Brief Introduction of Underwater Unmanned Aerial Vehicle  Underwater Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is a device that can move underwater, which has vision and perception system and uses remote control or autonomous operation mode. It uses manipulator or other tools to replace or assist people to complete underwater operations. In the 1970s, underwater UAVs have made great progress. A ...

  • Mobile UW–ASN framework with RSSI–based protocol for shallow river monitoring

    Approximately three–fourths of our planet's surface is covered by ocean and seas, a continuous body of water that is divided into several oceans and smaller seas. Water conditions determine climate that affects life on Earth. Whereas fresh water in lakes and rivers covers less 1%, its contamination significantly damages ecosystems. Within this research this paper proposes a framework with a ...
